Business forum well attended

02 Oct 2009

More than 50 people attended a business forum in Docklands on September 10 to discuss economic development opportunities in Docklands.

Facilitated by John Mero, the Docklands business community was given an opportunity to express its views and ideas about how to strengthen the local economy.

To introduce the subject, City of Melbourne Director of City Design and Urban Environment Rob Adams gave a short commentary and presentation of a selection of successful cities from around the world.

The forum was jointly presented by the City of Melbourne and VicUrban who will use the outcomes to help develop an economic strategy for Docklands.

The president of the Docklands Chamber of Commerce Keith Rankin said the forum was a good idea, but had no decisive outcomes.

“It should have had much more time allocated and been structured in such a way as to achieve a decision and action plan which clearly defined who was responsible for implementation and within what timeframe,” Mr Rankin said.
