Stake­hold­ers to help Port de­velop

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

AD­DI­TIONAL stake­hold­ers will be in­vited to help for­mu­late an eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment task­force for Port Dou­glas.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Port Dou­glas Cham­ber of Com­merce, Tourism Port Dou­glas Dain­tree, Ad­vance Cairns and Klein­hardt Busi­ness Con­sul­tants along with Division 10 Coun­cil­lor Ju­lia Leu met last Fri­day to fur­ther a plan of ac­tion to re­vi­talise the lo­cal econ­omy.

The next step will be to con­sult with a broader audi- ence to iden­tify the trends and driv­ing forces be­hind the lo­cal econ­omy and ad­dress the bar­ri­ers to deal­ing with these by de­vel­op­ing goals, strate­gies and clear ac­tion plans.

The task­force will then at­tempt to build con­nec­tiv­ity with gov­ern­ments and other key stake­hold­ers and out­line a struc­ture which sup­ports an on­go­ing eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment role.

The group will meet again on Fri­day to de­ter­mine ad­di­tional stake­hold­ers.
