Economic Development considers the business, industry, employment and growth characteristics of a community and seeks to capitalise on these factors to build strong, vibrant and financially secure places to live, work and invest.
Snowy Monaro Regional Council is well placed to engage in economic development strategies with local communities due to the grass roots nature of local government. Council envisages the growth of our communities over time, with a focus on lifestyle factors which attract and retain residents. The region is positioning itself as a major commercial, retail, educational and services centre within South East NSW. Prominent industries include tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, construction and retail.
