Welcome to the The Melbourne Espresso.

As the Victorian State Government's economic development and investment attraction agency, we're excited to share the latest news and economic insight shaping investment opportunities in Victoria.

We look forward to sharing a coffee with you to discuss your next investment project!

Word from the CEO

2022 has been a great year for Victoria, with economic growth above the national average. The NAB Monthly Business Survey released this month showed business confidence in Victoria was the highest among all Australian states while business conditions improved strongly and were well above the national average.

Melbourne’s world-class infrastructure, deep talent base and highly ranked liveability continue to attract the best skills, businesses and entrepreneurship from around the globe.

Our recently launched International Investment Report 2021-22 describes how Invest Victoria is helping drive innovation across different sectors with investment attraction activities that are exceeding targets.

And we’re looking to the future, with the recent launch of the Victorian Government's Advanced Air Mobility Industry Vision Statement, which highlights our commitment to innovation and developing exciting new ecosystems and evolving industries.

With 23 global offices across the Victorian Government Trade and Investment network, as well as a range of funds and programs designed to help businesses and startups, we’re ready to connect investors with Victoria’s thriving market.

I look forward to sharing more about the historic investment opportunities, multi-sector growth and great work that is driving Victoria forward.

Take care,


Danni Jarrett
CEO, Invest Victoria
