PLANS to establish an Asia Town precinct in Midland will be discussed at a forum next month.

The Swan Chamber of Commerce is inviting the public to put forward their views on establishing an Asian-themed dining and business precinct along The Crescent between Helena Street and Keane Street in Midland.

The Chamber said over time it was expected the precinct would attract more Asian businesses into the area which would draw customers and help local businesses grow.

The proposal involves marketing the precinct, Asian brand street signage, street art, night-time trade activation and an emphasis on alfresco dining.

The forum will be held at The Quest Hotel on Monday, October 1 from 5pm to 6pm.
