West of Melbourne Economic Strategy Launch

This event has already taken place.

Wednesday 6 December 2017

The Hon Steve Bracks AC and Professor Peter Dawkins AO invite you to the launch of the Economic Development Strategy for the West of Melbourne.

The Strategy has been produced by the West of Melbourne Economic Development Alliance (WoMEDA).

You may attend its official launch, where Steve Bracks will discuss the Strategy and lead a Q&A session with board members of WoMEDA.

Copies of the Strategy will also be available.

About WoMEDA

WoMEDA is chaired by Steve Bracks and represents a wide range of parties from the West, including local government and a number of major employers.

The focus of the Economic Development Strategy is very explicitly on strengthening employment in the West.

Employment hubs in the West

In order to encourage the development of local jobs, the Strategy focuses on three major employment hubs:

  • Footscray
  • Sunshine
  • Werribee.

For each hub there are specialised plans.

Clearly, the West is much more than those three hubs; however, building these three strong local hubs of employment will generate widespread benefits for the region.

There are also over-arching issues of catch-up, which need to be addressed.
