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.

The Central West has a vibrant and resilient agricultural sector. The red meat industry is a major employer of our region and was on show last week at the Agribusiness Today Forum held this year in Cowra.

Over 100 delegates attended and learnt about innovative ways to maximise red meat yields and market opportunities. On behalf of RDA Central West, I would like to thank all sponsors, partners and committed organisers for their support to help create such a successful event.

The Agribusiness Today Forum grows in importance each year. Providing the region’s agricultural industry with avenues like this forum in times of drought are vital in both a business, networking and learning sense.

We’d love to hear your feedback about what you might like to see as the focus of a future Agribusiness Today Forum.

Please email your suggestions to me: Sam Harma e.  director@rdacentralwest.org.au

Message from the CEO, Julia Andrews

We are all really excited here at RDA Central West about the recent news enabling us to expand the STEM Industry School Partnerships (SISP) program into more rural towns and schools across the Central West in 2019.

Following the highly successful pilot that ran in three NSW regions in 2018 (Central West, Hunter and Southern Inland) the NSW Department of Education has committed funding for 2019.
