Event description

Description

Western Australia has reached a turning point – we are through the worst of the state’s economic woes, according to CCI's latest biannual review of the WA economy.

With optimism returning to WA, now is the time for your business to start planning for the future growth opportunities, and for the Bunbury Geographe region to leverage its infrastructure, landscape and natural assets to grow and develop the region into a thriving economy.

Go Geo Ltd will be hosting CCIWA Chief Economist Rick Newnham to hear him discuss the state of the Bunbury Geographe Economy and opportunities for industry growth.

Rick will be available for questions, and attendees will have an opportunity to network over a provided lunch at the Rose Hotel Ballroom.
