The report provides an annual breakdown of the economic climate in the CBD,

Speaking on some of the evident opportunities in the inner city, editor, Carola Koblitz says some of the growing and more populated residential areas could do with extended business hours, simultaneously increasing jobs.

She has identified existing precincts that can provide more retail opportunity with longer trading hours.
