Turbo-charging Regional Victoria

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is again heading to regional Victoria to speak with local businesses to inform a regional policy that focuses on increasing competitive advantage and investment, building on what we learned in previous engagements.

Regional Victoria faces unique challenges that can be addressed, adding to the many success stories in mining, manufacturing, food production and innovation.

The Chamber wants to enable businesses to prosper, which will translate into more jobs, more opportunities and better economic outcomes for all.

Policy consultations will align with the Chamber’s briefings on Federal Industrial Relations law changes:

  • Bendigo – Thursday 11 April: 10:30am

  • Mildura – Tuesday 16 April: 10:30am

  • Warrnambool – Thursday 18 April: 10:30am

  • Shepparton – Monday 22 April: 10:30am

  • Traralgon – Tuesday 30 April: 10:30am

To be attributed to Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Paul Guerra:

“The Victorian Chamber recognises how critical Regional Victorian businesses are to the success of our state and country. That’s why we want to hear from businesses from Traralgon to Mildura to find out exactly what challenges they face and opportunities they see so that we can continue to advocate to turbo-charge our regions.”

“As the representative voice of 85,000 members and clients, the Victorian Chamber has a vital role to play as the strong voice and advocate for business and enterprise in this state. We need successful businesses to have a harmonious society and the view of every business, right across the state, is key to achieving that.”
