Tell us your opinion See what others have saidThe Gippsland Local Government Network has come out in active and vocal support of the Gippsland Regional Summit being held on 23 February 2001 at Monash University, Gippsland Campus.
"The Gippsland Regional Summit, being organised by Gippsland Development Limited, is a vitally important event for the future development of Gippsland," Chair of GLGN, Councillor Tony Hanning said.
"The Summit will set the scene for development strategies and actions to make a difference to the future economic prosperity of our Region. The Summit will bring together people from across Gippsland to focus their attention on the really
important issues, whether they be agriculture, the timber industry, the energy industry, education and training, innovation and new technology," Cr Hanning said.
"Local government is a major shareholder in Gippsland Development, the regional economic development agency. Through Gippsland Development, Gippsland Councils have invested significantly in cooperative efforts to develop the whole Region.
The Summit is an example of this cooperation. "Economic development staff from the various Gippsland Councils are directly
involved in the running of the Summit and ensuring that it achieves the best possible outcomes. These staff will, for example, be facilitating workshops and discussions,” Cr Hanning added.
“The Regional Summit has already attracted close to 200 registrations, which is an indication of the huge level of support generated across Gippsland.
"However, there is still room for more participation. So interested people should contact Gippsland Development Limited on 5143 2322 about registering,” Cr Hanning concluded.
