Gascoyne Alliance supporting regional businesses
Focusing to improve our services within WA regional areas - we discussed current issues and concerns with businesses and government organisations in the Gascoyne region. This led to planning initiatives to provide a portfolio of programs to deal with those issues.
This region known as the food bowl provides nearly 40% of produce to feed Perth. Organised by the Chambers Regional lead Marilyn Rulyancich, the multi day event was a great showcase of our community and products and services.
