The Australian Made Campaign is bolstering its support for local economic development next month, through its sponsorship of the National Economic Development Australia Conference.
The three-day conference will be held in Ballarat from 10-12 October 2017, and will see economic development professionals from all over the country gather to learn and discuss opportunities for industry and employment growth.
Ballarat City Council was the first local government body to make an official commitment to the national not-for-profit Australian Made Campaign more than a decade ago, and remains an Australian Made Campaign Supporter today.
City of Ballarat Mayor Cr Samantha McIntosh said the City of Ballarat actively supported the Australian Made Campaign in its function to promote Australian Made products.
“We see great value in the Australian Made logo and encourage local businesses to participate in the program, promote their products and maximise potential sales,” Cr McIntosh said.
The Australian Made, Australian Grown logo will feature prominently at the conference, as one of the most recognised and trusted symbols representing Australian growers and manufacturers.
All attendees will receive information about how they can support local producers, via the logo and the campaign behind it.
