EconomX – a strategy-based platform for regional content

We believe that great regional content practices, executed by smart and forward thinking projects, can drive commercial benefits and change communities from the inside out as a force for positive economic and social change.

EconomX was created as a technology-based solution to implement contemporary and collaborative regional content practices. The platform helps projects align with regional content best-practice while complying with Australian Industry Participation Plans and the Strong and Sustainable Resource Communities Act 2017.

EconomX is backed by experts in regional content, transformational technology, major projects, client-side procurement, and regional Australia.

The EconomX mission

The core of our mission is to make it easier for major projects and contractors to engage with regional suppliers, identifying cost savings, efficiencies and innovation in the process.

Our platform helps regional businesses to engage directly with the major project buyers who matter, while also enabling economic development organisations to deliver significant value for their members and communities, building a more competitive and attractive region.

The reality of regional content

Regional Content is a shared responsibility and everyone has a role to play.
Ultimately, sustainable regional economic growth will not be achievable until there are better ways for local businesses and regional projects to connect and exchange information.
Buyers should be searching for savvier ways to get a greater amount of the opportunities available to their project region. In turn, local businesses must prove they have the capability and capacity to deliver value, efficiency and reliability.
EconomX is designed to work in partnership with stakeholders to facilitate commercial, economic and social benefits for regional supply chains, the Major Projects they host and the communities they sustain.
We take a whole-of-community approach to regional content.
