They came, they talked and now they are set to conquer.
The South West Regional Economic Development (SWRED) Committee assembled in Charleville this week with a number of issues on the table, aimed at driving shires and regions across the south west into the future.
SWRED chairman and Paroo Mayor Lindsay Godfrey says the Committee has now set in concrete two key projects.
“The first project is an investigation into how potential south-west Queensland red meat co-operatives could be created to export directly to overseas markets; linking logistics chains with Toowoomba’s airport.”
“The second project, more localized, focuses on creating tourism channels between shires.”
Investigations will now commence are expected to stretch over the next 12 months.
