DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER Michael McCormack MP is launching the countdown to the Sustainable Economic Growth for Regional Australia (SEGRA) Conference from 10am at the Barooga Sports Club in Barooga, NSW today.
SEGRA has been speaking out for regional Australia for 23 years. It is a critical forum where regional development practitioners, industry, researchers and government bring together their combined knowledge and ideas on regional futures from across Australia.
“SEGRA is Australia’s most credible independent voice on issues affecting regional Australia," SEGRA conference convenor Kate Charters said.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for Barooga and surrounds to showcase the region's diverse beauty and its business initiatives to a national audience but also for people from the region to access the national and international speakers on regional economic development."
"SEGRA would like to thank the NSW Government via its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, Berrigan and Moira Shires, RDAs Murray and Hume, Barooga Sporties, Cobram Barooga Business and Tourism for their support of the conference," Ms Charters said.
SEGRA will be held at Barooga on August 20-22 and its theme this year is Rivers of Opportunity: Activating Your Potential.
