Like a red rag to local business

December 02, 2017

THE Victorian Red Tape Commissioner Matthew Butlin will hear Echuca’s challenges first-hand when he visits the region soon.

Mr Butlin has been secured at Committee for Echuca-Moama’s next roundtable event.

The event will hear from businesses who have policy barriers which restrict business growth or performance.

C4EM chief executive Martin Szakal said it was imperative to attract and encourage all government departments to visit the area and address any issues the twin towns might have.

‘‘The Red-Tape Commissioner will hear our policy challenges and consider these when responding to government policy development,’’ he said.

‘‘These meetings are important. We are encouraging the entire business community in Echuca to contact us if they would like us to raise issues on their behalf.”

Mr Szakal said while C4EM had this opportunity it would ‘‘explore all opportunities that assist in delivering a more connected, prosperous and vibrant Echuca-Moama’’.

‘‘It is our vision,’’ he said.

Mr Butlin will visit Echuca on December 13 at a venue to be determined.

C4EM is seeking expressions of interest from those who would like to attend as it is a roundtable discussion, not a public event.
