Fo­rum to set project scene for busi­ness

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Joanna De­la­lande

It might be sev­eral months away, but the Esper­ance Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try al­ready has prepa­ra­tions for its 11th an­nual busi­ness and in­dus­try fo­rum well un­der way.

ECCI chief ex­ec­u­tive Kylie Ryan said the cham­ber was in the process of con­firm­ing spon­sors and pre­sen­ters for Over the Hori­zon 2019, due to be held on Fri­day, April 5 at the Esper­ance Civic Cen­tre.

“We have de­cided to hold the event on the Fri­day in the hope that some at­ten­dees trav­el­ling to Esper­ance for the event may de­cide to take up the op­tion to stay and en­joy what our com­mu­nity and re­gion has to of­fer over the week­end,” she said.

Ms Ryan said the event sought to pro­vide lo­cal and re­gional busi­ness and in­dus­try own­ers with an idea of what de­vel­op­ments and projects were cur­rently un­der way or planned for the near fu­ture in Esper­ance and the broader re­gion.

“This will hope­fully help busi- nesses and in­dus­tries to make de­ci­sions about whether or not they could ben­e­fit from ex­pan­sion and in­vest­ment to meet fu­ture de­mands in the com­mu­nity and re­gion,” she said.

“The ECCI would like this year’s fo­rum to be well at­tended and for pre­sen­ters to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion that is top­i­cal and rel­e­vant for our lo­cal and re­gional busi­nesses and in­dus­tries.”

Ms Ryan said feed­back from pre­vi­ous years had in­di­cated at­ten­dees wanted to hear from govern­ment min­is­ters.

State min­is­ters Rita Saf­fi­oti, Si­mone McGurk and La­bor Mem­ber for the Agri­cul­tural Re­gion Dar­ren West would be among the pre­sen­ters at the event.

“The min­is­ters have been asked to share in­for­ma­tion about Esper­ance and the south-east coastal re­gion and to pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for at­ten­dees to ask ques­tions,” she said.

“We hope Over the Hori­zon will be of great value for those who at­tend to give them in­for­ma­tion on fu­ture de­vel­op­ments in our com­mu­nity and re­gion.”
