Region. Broadening networks

Several Sydney-based organisations have expressed interest in broadening their networks and activities to include Western Sydney. These include the Institute of Company Directors, the Sydney Business Chamber and the Property Council of NSW, according to Parramatta City Council. The Property Industry Foundation has established a Western Sydney Chapter and placed two of council’s senior managers on committees.Most of these organisations regard Parramatta as a natural base from which to access the region, council said.


Region. Mission to Brazil

Two Western Sydney firms are among eight NSW companies on a business mission organised by NSW Trade & Investment for the Australian International Sporting Events Secretariat, seeking business opportunities with the world's two premier sporting events, the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, in Brazil. The companies are Sebel Furniture, Padstow, (seating design and production providing solutions for sports and other venues, corporate and public developments); and Thin Blue Line Consulting, Homebush, (consultants in security, protection and public order planning).


Parramatta. Economic forum in 2012

Following the success of its one-day economic development forum, in March this year, Parramatta City Council plans to hold a similar event, possibly over two days, in March 2012.
