Procure tipped to grow business opportunities

FORREST MHR Nola Marino says Procure South West was the perfect opportunity for local businesses to network.

Mrs Marino was among the many delegates invited to the business event held on Friday and Saturday at South Regional TAFE.

Mrs Marino said the event gave businesses an opportunity to grow.

“I think this is really a great opportunity for businesses to connect with some of the bigger businesses in the region,” she said.

“I am hoping that more of them speak to each other as well and form good relationships.” Mrs Marino said the event was timely following the announcement of procurement for defence.

“I want to see people here actually coming along to that presentation and look at the opportunities for business with those contracts,” she said.

Mrs Marino said she was pleased to see so many people turn up for the event.

“It has been a fantastic turnout and I am looking forward to listening to a number of the guest speakers here today,” she said.

“It is terrific to be able to see an event like this held in the South West and I hope it continues.”
