WQLGA Annual Conference - Registrations Open

It has never been more important for communities in Western Queensland to broaden their economic base. As barriers to trade and investment continue to be disrupted all over the world, our communities are less economically isolated than ever before.

Under the theme of Regional Resilience, where everyone has a role to play, this conference focuses on fields where local government can assist the growth of industries that make their communities more liveable and sustainable:

Tourism
Exploring our role in industry development and managing demand.

Food Production and Advanced Agriculture
Rising above the limitations of climate through technology and innovation.

Jobs and Skills
Attracting new skills and training our communities for the jobs we need. 

Energy, Water, and Waste
Supporting essential infrastructure needs and how they can be improved to enable growth. 

Investment Readiness 
Ensuring the structure and support is in place to maximise return.
