City of Swan set to host economic forum

THE City of Swan, in partnership with Edith Cowan University, will host the 2016 National Economic Development Conference in October.

The City believes it is well placed to host the conference because of its strong economy, population growth and diverse industrial, commercial, agriculture and tourism sector close to the airport and Perth CBD.

It will also be able to show off the Swan Valley and Midland as a regional strategic metropolitan centre and gateway to WA’s North East.

Themes of the conference include the leadership role local government is taking to create investment and growth opportunities; collaborating to achieve economic and infrastructure priorities; and ‘why university partnerships are essential’.

The conference, tentatively scheduled for October 5-7, will be held across Perth.
