Central Coast Economic Breakfasts
Central Coast stakeholder organisations are collaborating to deliver a revised Economic Breakfast forum to the region. All local businesses, government organisations and NGO’s will be invited and encouraged to attend this valuable forum to hear firsthand the current economic data that is impacting the Central Coast. This data will be presented by leading economists, who will convey the opportunities this data creates for the region. Guests also have the opportunity to network with fellow business, Government and NGO leaders.
A local economic speaker will be using the data sourced through Economy.ID via the subscription made by RDACC and both Councils in 2013. Economy ID brings together economic data from multiple sources to tell the story of the local economy and how it is changing.This data will be further interpreted and presented at the breakfasts. The data has been made available to the public online in three data formats- Central Coast as a region, Gosford and Wyong Council local government areas (LGAs). http://economy.id.com.au/central-coast-nsw
Breakfast dates are set for: March 14th and October 17th.
