Dropbox chooses Sydney for first Asia Pacific office
23 July 2014
Global cloud storage leader Dropbox has chosen Sydney as the location for the company's first Asia Pacific office underlining Sydney's growing reputation as a leading digital and ICT hub.
Dropbox is the latest in a series of global digital and ICT leaders including Google, Facebook and Twitter to select Sydney as the base for their Australian and Asia Pacific operations, recognising Sydney's significant role at the heart of Australia's digital economy.
Sydney and NSW dominate Australia's ICT industry, accounting for around 40 per cent of Australia's digital and ICT businesses. NSW is home to the largest number of skilled digital and ICT professionals in the country.
Dropbox Sydney is expected to create a number of new jobs in the first year in customer facing roles, with the company focused on providing targeted support to Dropbox's millions of users in the Asia Pacific region.
NSW Trade & Investment's San Francisco office played a key role in facilitating Dropbox's decision to locate in Sydney.
The six international NSW Trade & Investment offices work closely with local teams to attract international investment, facilitate exports, create jobs and grow the economy.
In the last financial year alone, the international trade and investment offices have secured $500 million in foreign investment for the State.
