The Eastern Metropolitan Partnership has been established as a new way of engagement between local communities, and state and local governments, and is a coordinated way for the community to advise government on what matters in Melbourne's East.

The Partnership, ministers and other elected government officials, community and business members got together at the first Eastern Metropolitan Assembly on Thursday 31 August 2017 to discuss the top priorities for the region. This feedback will be used by the Partnership to advise the Victorian Government on priorities for the East.
