The Gippsland Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the opportunities and challenges faced by their region.
Over the past two years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Gippsland, including through three Regional Assemblies and two mini Assemblies.
We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from you going forward.
2018 Regional Assembly
Our 2018 Regional Assembly was held on Thursday 28 June in Wonthaggi.
It was an opportunity to hear
what the Partnership has achieved to date, and for participants to add their thoughts on our top priorities — connectivity, energy and resources, family and community wellbeing, food and fibre, skills and education, visitor economy and tourism, and new jobs and industry.
It was great to see so many people there and to hear the depth of conversation.
We also held a smaller satellite session in Lakes Entrance at the same time where attendees had a chance to interact with the Assembly in Wonthaggi.
We still want to hear from you.
The 2018 Assembly may be over but we still want to hear your views on our top priorities and how we can continue to shape our region.
