“Our new committee consists of regional leaders across a variety of industries, and each member will bring with them valuable experience, knowledge and business relationships.
“The committee have a relatively new charter to help identify economic development opportunities that leverage the public and private sector within the Orana region as well as connecting the region with industry sectors, international trade partners, financial markets, regional entrepreneurs and business leaders,”
“I am anticipating that the strengths of our new committee will allow RDA Orana to continue creating successful projects that promote opportunities, attract investment and encourage economic development,” Mr Walkom said.
Newly appointed committee member Ross Earl said he was looking forward to the future.
“I am looking forward to the new challenge and working with the committee whose members come from all over the area.”
