Inspite of set backs, the Goulburn Mulwaree council will continue to push its status for being able to accept business affected by growth pressues in the Sydney basin.

 

A local submission will be made to the NSW government Upper House inquiry into regional development and a 'Global Sydney'.

 

The argument is that Sydney's growing prominence as a global city can enhance regional development in NSW,

 

Mayor Bob Kirk says the government must acknowledge that regional NSW has major growth potential and is more than capable of addressing business needs and growth.

 

The loss of four hundred jobs to Goulburn recently is still on Councillor Kirk's mind and he says government has major responsibility to ensure other jobs are not lost.

 

The Upper House inquiry will identify sectors of the economy which can provide the greatest opportunities for regional development.
