Reflections from the Chair, George Fong


Welcome to our first newsletter of 2018 – a year of turning opportunity into action.

Your Central Highlands Regional Partnership remains committed to “listening to, and delivering for, our community” and, as you will see from the update, we have been very active since our last Assembly in October 2017.

Our focus remains on what the Central Highlands will look like in 2020 and how we utilise your feedback to address priority issues that make Central Highlands a better place to live, work and do business.

Identified priority themes include Health, Social Welfare and Community, Energy, Agriculture, Digital and Transport Connectivity, Economic Development, and Education and Training. Given the number of initiatives and strategic relationships we have developed so far, I think much has been achieved but much has still yet to be done.

Your feedback and support is important to us. Make sure you stay connected with the Partnership on one of our digital platforms. You can find more about us here, on Facebook and on our Engage page.
