A message from CEO Sam Harma – October 2019

Go West for the Western Business Forum: Condobolin, Monday 4 November 2019

October is NSW Small Business Month and RDA Central West has been working hard to showcase many of the region’s local businesses and events which are creating jobs and driving the local economy forward. Small business is the lifeblood of many of our communities and this month, as in all months, I am encouraging everyone to shop local where you can and back local businesses having a go.

A major event supporting local business development and investment attraction will be taking place at the Condobolin Showgrounds on Monday 4 November this year. The ‘Western Business Forum’ aims to showcase why the Lachlan Shire and the Central West region is such a great place to live, work and invest.
