KDCCI joins north­ern al­liance

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

■ Pil­bara busi­nesses will be rep­re­sented by the Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and Industry in dis­cus­sions about the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s North­ern Aus­tralia White Pa­per.

The North­ern Aus­tralia Al­liance, which pro­motes busi­ness views to the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment, pre­vi­ously had rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Broome, Dar­win and Cairns, but none from the Pil­bara.

KDCCI chief ex­ec­u­tive John Lally said he would li­aise with all Pil­bara CCIs to en­sure a voice for busi­ness in the re­gion.

“This is a non-gov­ern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion — a group of busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tions deal­ing with the Gov­ern­ment on the White Pa­per,” he said.

“The al­liance is just there to put up ideas and projects from a busi­ness per­spec­tive.”

“The Gov­ern­ment’s White Pa­per leans to­wards Queens­land.

“There is not so much in it for WA, so we want to be at the ta­ble.”

Mr Lally said pro­mot­ing emerg­ing in­dus­tries such as tourism and agri­cul­ture would be a pri­or­ity.
