Stun­ning back­drop for sun­downer

Broome Advertiser - - Happenings - Carly Laden

Be­fore the 2018 Kim­ber­ley Eco­nomic Fo­rum of­fi­cially kicked off, guests were given the op­por­tu­nity to take in the stun­ning views of Roe­buck Bay and net­work with other busi­nesses.

The Broome Cham­ber of Com­merce and Nyamba Buru Yawuru held a Busi­ness Af­ter Hours sun­downer at the Man­grove Ho­tel on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 9, be­fore the fo­rum of­fi­cially be­gan on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10.

At the sun­downer, Nyamba Buru Yawuru chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter Yu not only wel­comed guests to the fo­rum, but he also of­fi­cially launched Yawuru Fu­tures, a pol­icy doc­u­ment set­ting the frame­work and di­rec­tion for the growth of Yawuru well­be­ing and pros­per­ity in the North­ern Aus­tralia devel­op­ment agenda.

The doc­u­ment also pre­sented an op­por­tu­nity for busi­ness and in­vestors to con­tem­plate their work­ing re­la­tion­ship with in­dige­nous groups across the re­gion.

Raf­fles were also drawn on the night, giv­ing away sev­eral pieces of art­work, cre­ated by lo­cal in­dige­nous artists.
