RDA ACT welcomes new Director of Regional Development

The RDA ACT Committee welcomes incoming Director of Regional Development, Michael Claessens, who took up the position on Monday, 16 July.

Michael is relishing the challenge of his new appointment, coming at a time when the RDA has been re-tasked nationally to secure tangible regional economic development outcomes.  He believes that ACT industry needs a trusted independent broker who will reduce business's high transaction costs: helping them to connect with funding, partners, skills and key networks.

The highly successful collaborative model already forged by RDA ACT in the renewable energy sector sets an important precedent for similar possibilities across other sectors in the coming years. Working collaboratively with the Federal and ACT governments, this will help deliver more investment and more jobs.
