Mount Isa City Council said the report card for its four-year economic development strategy is showing good results.
Developed in 2017, the strategy contains five key economic development outcomes and 30 specific initiatives.
The report card looks at leadership, partnering, diversification, expansion and positioning for the future.
The report said Council provided leadership to promote the economic corridor between Tennant Creek to Townsville, putting Mount Isa in the centre of this growth, while it had secured Queensland Government funding to work with JCU and TAFE to assess the use of Hard Times Mines facility to provide training services for mine industry workers.
Mayor Joyce McCulloch said the report identified highlights since the strategy was launched including ongoing investment and planning for infrastructure and tourism projects, advocacy with state and federal ministers and MPs, and submissions to parliamentary inquiries on matters of importance to the city's regional economy.
"The report card highlighted successful implementation actions under council's 2017-2020 economic development strategy which continue to enhance the economic future for our region," Cr McCulloch said.
"Delivery of a diverse range of projects is underway with positive outcomes being achieved through collaboration between council, local business and industry groups, so there is an incredible amount of progress made and even greater outcomes to be realised."
The report identified progress in a number of areas of diversification, including the proposed Mount Isa Transport and Logistics Centre which is now in a business case phase.
The city's Tourism Strategy has been finalised by a working group of more than 60 local stakeholders and national industry experts and will be launched in February.
Cr McCulloch said the Council has been an active voice in advocating for Northern Australia development through involvement with the Resources 2030 Taskforce, MITEZ, Mount Isa Cross Border Commission, Geoscience Australia, and NWQROC, and has launched the city's first Investment Prospectus.
She said Council has also committed heavily to improving liveability and social health and initiated the "City of Opportunity" campaign.
