Message from the CEO

Welcome to 2019 and what a year it's shaping up to be!

Obviously the  beginning of light rail services this year will be a major milestone for our City.  It is set to improve liveability and convenience as well as provide the ACT with a project and a transport service we can be proud of.

Transport infrastructure was a feature of a recent meeting held at Canberra Airport - in function of assisting the development of the Airport's next Master Plan. Along with the need for better roads, there will be the need to consider water infrastructure in the context of food production, of which some will ultimately find its way onto aircraft on its way to the tables of Asia and  bringing a cheaper and better product to ACT consumers as well.

RDA ACT will be inviting guest columnists each quarter to 'soap box' their views on driving economic development in our region. 

To shape the future we need to know our past. In an interesting piece written by local Historian Nicole Overall (titled "Canberra's Border Wars", via newsletter or website) - we can see how the mutual interdependence of Queanbeyan and Canberra has shaped what we see today and holds the promise of better things to come.

Agrifood production, Renewable Energy and workforce and skills will be foci this year for us along with much work in the investment space across all sectors. Please feel free to get in touch with us with suggestions for new projects and ideas - you have our promise of a receptive hearing.
