Economic Development

Armidale is one of the first communities in Australia to benefit from super fast, fibre optic broadband. This is providing the regional economy with numerous opportunities for business development and innovation.

Armidale’s strengths lie in its educational, agricultural, retail, government and professional services, and it is these industry sectors, and the emerging digital sector that provide vital employment for a significant portion of the local labour force.
