Introducing the Adelaide Economic Development Agency

After significant stakeholder engagement and planning over 2019-2020, the Adelaide Economic Development Agency (AEDA) commenced operating on 18 January 2021.

The City of Adelaide recognised the importance of the need to accelerate economic growth in the city and North Adelaide, and as part of its 2020-2024 Strategic Plan, sought to design and implement a new city-wide business model. This led to the creation of AEDA.

AEDA has been established as a subsidiary of the City of Adelaide under Section 42 of the Local Government Act 1999 (SA).

Working closely with businesses, industry groups, state government agencies and other relevant organisations, AEDA delivers a range of programs designed to stimulate the city's economic growth with a focus on investment attraction, growing our visitor economy, residential growth, marketing the city as a whole and promoting Rundle Mall as Adelaide's premier shopping destination.
