Peter Walsh MP:
Regional Victoria Commonwealth Games bid

This is an exciting proposal for regional Victoria and the Liberal Nationals look forward to learning more about this opportunity.

By Portal Admin - 20th April 2017 - Back to News

Country Victorians love their sport and would be thrilled to host Commonwealth Games events in their home towns.

The concept is a great fit with our population and decentralisation policies, and it would be a terrific boost for jobs and regional economies.

Our vision is to grow all of Victoria, not just Melbourne, and an opportunity like this could help drive investment in the transport and community infrastructure our regions need for future growth.
