'Cultivating Connectivity'

Wed 9 – Fri 11 August, 2017
The World Theatre, Charters Towers

ABOUT THE CONVENTION

Rural and regional communities make a significant contribution to Australia’s economic prosperity. Improved connectivity enables flexible working, further growth in agribusiness and knowledgebased industries, and a boost in shared innovation.

The 2017 LGAQ Bush Councils Convention will delve into how these trends can be harnessed for stronger productivity, job creation and trade opportunities.

Bush councils are integral in supporting communities harness their potential, not only as providers of essential infrastructure, but facilitators of vital business connections.

With a State Election looming, local government must look to partnership opportunities – both with government and the private sector – to invest in connectivity, from transport infrastructure to social networks and promoting industry sectors and skills development.

A technical tour showcasing key projects around the historic Charters Towers township is planned, with networking opportunities through the trade pavilion and evening functions.
