Platform: BUILD OUR REGIONAL IDENTITIES

To grow awareness of the Great South Coast’s food & fibre regions, credentials and areas of competitive advantage

“We will  grow awareness of the Great South Coast’s food & fibre regions, credentials, areas of competitive advantage and opportunities.”

Today there is considerable interest in investing in agriculture from Australia and overseas but in the Great South Coast region there is a lack of businesses and projects that are currently “investment ready” to attract this investment. Particularly pertinent is that there is no visible and cohesive profile of the Great South Coast region regarding potential which means that investors overlook the area. A current and dynamic e-prospectus will showcase what resources in land, water and expertise the region has in abundance to potential investors.

The challenge is to attract investors to look at the region and then facilitate local businesses with investment ready business opportunities to connect. Innovative proposals from throughout the region do currently exist and are capital starved through a lack of avenues to source equity investors. Other opportunities exist including building business groupings to be a shop front to the world and indeed a one stop shop for overseas service and product customers.
