Capes Re­gion Busi­ness Network was of­fi­cially launched last week, with the five groups in­volved sign­ing a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion in­volves the Au­gusta, Bus­sel­ton, Duns­bor­ough, Yallingup and Mar­garet River cham­bers of com­merce and the Cowaramup Re­tail­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, which have come to­gether to in­crease di­a­logue be­tween the or­gan­i­sa­tions, with re­tired South West MLC Barry House chair­ing the new part­ner­ship.

The MOU was signed at a cham­ber event last week, with Re­gional CCIWA chief ex­ec­u­tive Kitty Prodonovich also speak­ing. Ms Prodonovich said the col­lab­o­ra­tion would be ben­e­fi­cial for the re­gion.

“There is no doubt that wher­ever there is col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween cham­bers of com­merce and in­dus­try groups in re­gional West­ern Aus­tralia, the ben­e­fits to lo­cal busi­nesses is sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased,” she said.

“Lo­cal and State gov­ern­ments are ap­pre­cia­tive of col­lab­o­ra­tive group rep­re­sen­ta­tions.”
