Olympic benefits 2032
Westpac has forecast that Brisbane hosting the Olympics could produce at least $17 billion of economic and social benefits for Australia, with around $8 billion of that flowing into Queensland. Further, the event could create 130,000 direct jobs, including 10,000 during 2032. The Value Proposition Assessment from the Queensland Government also expects $20.2 billion in international visitor expenditure.
Sydney property values jumped 60% between the Olympic announcement in 1993 and the actual Games in 2000. Westpac Business Bank’s Chief Economist, Besa Deda said that “The 2000 Sydney Olympic Games were estimated to inject around $6 billion into the Australian economy.”
