Ruapehu Press - - Sports Awards - FRANCES FER­GU­SON

Ruapehu Mayor Don Cameron is seek­ing in­ter­est in the for­ma­tion of a lo­cal Cham­ber of Com­merce.

Busi­ness lead­ers have been in­vited to take part in a work­shop to look at the idea of a Ruapehu Cham­ber of Com­merce.

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of the Auck­land Re­gional Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Michael Bar­nett will be at­tend­ing the work­shop on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 26.

Cameron said a Cham­ber of Com­merce could play a key role in help­ing es­tab­lished busi­nesses grow and help­ing new busi­nesses to suc­ceed.

‘‘A Ruapehu Cham­ber of Com­merce fits in with coun­cil’s vi­sion to help fa­cil­i­tate the de­vel­op­ment of pros­per­ous ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties that are able to cap­i­talise on our agri­cul­ture, busi­ness and tourism sec­tors while sus­tain­ing our beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ment.

‘‘All our ef­forts to in­crease jobs, in­comes and op­por­tu­ni­ties for Ruapehu com­mu­ni­ties has high­lighted the crit­i­cal im­por­tance of hav­ing the right ad­vice, sup­port and con­nec­tions.’’

‘‘A Ruapehu Cham­ber of Com­merce would also pro­vide an­other strong col­lec­tive voice in sup­port of Ruapehu is­sues to both coun­cil and Gov­ern­ment,’’ Cameron said.
