Golden Opportunity As Council Hosts Bush Summit
Monday, 12 Apr 2021Griffith will get the chance to shine in August when Griffith City Council hosts the “2021 Daily Telegraph Bush Summit”.
Council received confirmation on 6 April 2021 that the submission to host the one day event was successful.
The organiser, The Daily Telegraph, is working with the Office of the Prime Minister to set a date for the event during August that will enable Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s attendance.
Griffith Mayor John Dal Broi said as host city of the event, Griffith was set to benefit in a range of ways.
“The publicity and exposure that an event such as this gives our City is invaluable. This one day summit showcases the opportunities for businesses and families to realise their potential by moving to a rural or regional centre like ours,” said Councillor Dal Broi.
“We will get to moderate or sit on one of the panels on the day and we will also have a rare chance to network.
“This will be a golden opportunity to share with our political leaders exactly what issues we are facing.”
The inaugural summit was held in Dubbo in 2019, with Cooma hosting the 2020 event. Numerous political leaders presented at last year's event including the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, the Premier, and several Ministers both State and Federal, with several business leaders presenting.
The general themes for the Summit as proposed by the organisers include, The Miracle of Water, Populating our Regions, Trade Relations and Opportunities and Smart-agriculture – embracing the challenges of climate/doing more with less.
