MACROC President, Cr Anoulack Chanthivong, said the Forum is a great event to promote and raise awareness of the many development opportunities available in the Macarthur region.

”Macarthur will be going through a significant growth stage.  It is important that we get the right people together to outline how Macarthur will meet the challenges ahead and how we can take advantage of the growth in the Macarthur region to increase economic activity and employment for our community”.  Cr Chanthivong said.

Keynote speakers include:
• Sam Haddad, Director General, Planning NSW

“This event is about putting Macarthur first and promoting the benefits of doing business in Macarthur as the region grows and becomes a major part of the wider Sydney economic region.” Cr Chanthivong said.

“I have no doubt that the Macarthur region will benefit immensely from the expected growth and I am confident that this Forum will help businesses position themselves to take full advantage of the upcoming opportunities.”

Only a limited number of seats are available. Those interested in attending should register early by contacting MACROC office on 4645 4937.
