Projects Present New Opportunities For Gympie Businesses

The Gympie Regional Council, in partnership with the Queensland Government and Fraser Coast Regional Council, is offering local businesses the opportunity to learn how to stand out as a potential supplier for government projects.

The free online event will provide updates of projects that are happening or soon to happen in the Gympie and Fraser Coast regions.

It will also include a variety of presentations that cover topics such as, how to register for supply chain opportunities and how to pre-qualify to become an eligible supplier to state and local governments.

The event will also give tips on how to improve tender writing for use in private and government tender submissions.

Planning and economic development portfolio holder, Councillor Shane Waldock, said that this was a great opportunity for our local businesses.

“We know that many of our region’s businesses are struggling right now.

“But with some large projects making their way to the region over the coming months, some of our region’s businesses have enormous potential to be on the front foot,” said Cr Waldock.

“I hope that our local businesses take advantage of this free event.”
