Eco­nomic strat­egy out

Comment News (Armadale) - - Comment -

A NEW Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Strat­egy (EDS) has been launched to help the City of Armadale boost the lo­cal econ­omy over the next five years.

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones said the EDS would build on its 2012 pre­de­ces­sor to aid and mea­sure the growth of the lo­cal econ­omy from now un­til 2022.

“The over­ar­ch­ing frame­work of the strat­egy iden­ti­fied three key out­come ar­eas, which in­clude in­fras­truc­ture and in­vest­ment, pro­mo­tion of Armadale, and sup­port for busi­nesses,” he said.

“Our eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment vi­sion is to have a vi­brant and sus­tain­able econ­omy that pro­vides a di­ver­sity of jobs and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“The City will roll out the ma­jor­ity of the ac­tions, and sup­port other agen­cies and part­ners to com­plete the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties con­tained in the ac­tion plan.

“The chal­lenge for the City now lies in im­ple­ment­ing the plan and en­hanc­ing Armadale’s sta­tus as the Strate­gic Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cen­tre for the south­east re­gion.”
