To be attributed to Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Paul Guerra:

“It will be wonderful to reconnect in person with the Chamber’s regional members following two years of restricted travel and continue to build our relationships across all of our regional business Chambers.

“Regional Victoria is playing a critical role in our economic recovery and these roundtable meetings will be a fantastic opportunity to listen to the views and insights of businesses across the state.

“Our regions are the heart and soul of this great state and we’ve seen a significant migration of people to regional areas over the past two years. We are committed to continuing to support and advocate on behalf of businesses in our regions to boost jobs and investment.

“There’s never been a better time to support Regional Victoria’s greatest assets, its people and businesses, that will play a critical role in ensuring we restore Victoria’s status as an economic powerhouse.”
