A masterplan for growth

Shifts and developments across key industries over the past few years are rapidly changing the way that the Central Highlands does business. From now and into the future, our region must be prepared to tackle emerging disruptors in digital technology, export markets and changing population demographics in order to capitalise on the green shoots of opportunity. 

Our upcoming Economic Futures forum will touch on regional industry growth, industry and businesses growing together and building business readiness. Presenters range from local businesses who have met the challenges, to government and industry bodies who are setting the course for the future. Ask questions, make connections and create opportunities at our Beer and Business networking session.

The Forum will also launch two cornerstone documents for the Central Highlands region – the Central Highlands Economic Masterplan and the Agribusiness Capability Statement.

It is certainly an exciting time to be in business in the Central Highlands.
