CEO Update - December 2015


CEO Update - December 2015

This being my last update for 2015, I would like to thank you for your support and partnership over the past 12 months. Regional Development Australia Orana works to drive innovation, infrastructure and new jobs in the region through collaboration. This could not be achieved without mutual collaboration from all of our excellent partners.

The Regional Development Australia Orana team wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

2015 has been a great year for RDA Orana. The regional opportunities are great, and we have collated an overview of these into a booklet published in the past month and now on the website.

We may be preparing to shut down over the Christmas period, but developments in the region have not slowed down.

This past few weeks has seen the announcement of Round 2 of both the National Stronger Regions Fund and the Emissions Reduction Fund, with the Orana region faring well on both counts. Please read our overview of the Orana’s participation in the ERF here.

We would encourage all those who have a project idea or concept under development that may suit the National Stronger Regions Fund to apply (read more on the fund here) and to attend one of the information sessions being held by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development. We are lucky to have a session being held in the Orana region – other regions have not been so lucky – so we expect great things from Round 3 of the fund.

Finally, the team have considered what their biggest lessons have been for 2015 and would like to share them with you; these will inspire and inform our work in 2016 and we hope they may resonate with your businesses or projects as well.

We look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
