The current South Australian government has welcomed a move by Sony Interactive Entertainment to set up shop in the state's capital of Adelaide. The Marshall Liberal Government will also throw some AUD$480,000 behind the move to the state in an effort to help with "economic and business growth".

Initially the move will generate 32 jobs, it's reported, though growth in the move and continued governmental backing should help this number grow over a period. Here's what the Marshall Liberal Government had to say on the new venture officially:
Acting Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Tim Whetstone said the new Adelaide premises will provide highly skilled engineers an opportunity to progress their careers with a high-profile, global company without the need to relocate nationally or internationally.

“By building a culture of creativity and innovation, we are not only encouraging major companies to South Australia, we are giving young students who want to work in this field the ability to stay here in SA and not have to travel interstate for these types of exciting opportunities,” Minister Whetstone said.

“To attract a household name like Sony Interactive Entertainment to South Australia is a fantastic win for our state and I thank the company for their investment,” Mr Whetstone said.

“This investment brings a whole new skillset to the state but also complements the strengths we already have in digital media including visual effects (VFX), game development, and data centre/network infrastructure.

“South Australia is building a culture of creativity and innovation that is helping to inspire new enterprises and encourage leading creative companies like Sony Interactive Entertainment to invest in our state.”

The Economic and Business Growth Fund promotes economic development by encouraging growth of existing businesses, developing new industries, building international connections, and attracting foreign and national direct investment.

The fund aims for industry-wide, sector-wide or economy-wide outcomes, rather than benefits to just one company or small supply chain.
