Lord Mayor Campbell Newman said he was dedicated to making Brisbane an innovative, livable, new world city.

� Brisbane is currently experiencing phenomenal growth that is forecast to continue outstripping other major Australian centers for the next 20 years, �he said.

�To remain competitive and achieve our vision of becoming a world-class, easy living city, we must embrace continuous learning and remain at the forefront of innovation.�

�I encourage everyone to join in Enable2010 and support Brisbane�s pursuit for world-class knowledge and innovation.�
