By Jamil Allouche

A strengthening economy is an important thing to pursue in your local Victorian community. With a wide range of employment opportunities available across the region, you'll see the area continue to grow and develop, which is a great goal to pursue for residents of property in Brunswick.

The latest release from the Australian Bureau of Statistics has seen Victoria creating over 26,100 new jobs over August, with Treasurer Michael O'Brien stating the region also has the highest participation rate of non-mining states (65.2 per cent). 

"There were 26,000 new jobs created in Victoria last month, driven by full time and part time employment," said Mr O'Brien in a 11 September statement, stating that there are now 108,900 more people employed in Victoria since 2010. 

He went on to say the East West Link construction project is expected to create 6,200 jobs over the course of 2014/15, with the infrastructure development being one of the largest undertakings in the state at the current time. 

The strength of the Victorian economy could do wonders for anyone interested in securing their own property in the near future. Get in touch with a local real estate agent to discuss the options available to you.
