Council enters partnership to support business and industry in the region.

Joint release with BIEDO.

Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation (BIEDO) and North Burnett Regional Council are excited to announce a 12 month partnership to further support business and industry in the region.

This support will see BIEDO provide services and programs for both town-based and farm-based businesses across the North Burnett. Programs will include the successful North Burnett Agriculture Network along with a business extension program that will see BIEDO work more closely with chambers of commerce, business development groups, industry stakeholders and businesses to strengthen our region’s economy and industries.

“This partnership will enable BIEDO to increase its presence on the ground to provide grassroots support to our local businesses community” Mayor Chambers said.

“This is Council’s opportunity to continue investing in the region to achieve the best outcome for local business.  I encourage businesses to utilise BIEDO, whether it is a new business venture, checking to see what government assistance is out there or just being able to chat to someone who understands what your business is going through”.

BIEDO CEO Kristy Frahm has welcomed the opportunity to strengthen BIEDO’s collaboration with Council, which will enhance economic development outcomes for the region.

“As a not-for-profit economic development organisation serving the Burnett Inland, we are proud to partner with North Burnett Regional Council under this new agreement”, Ms Frahm said.

“BIEDO welcomes Council’s support, which will enable our organisation to respond to the needs of the North Burnett business community. We encourage all town and farm-based businesses to get in touch with enquiries related to sustaining or developing your business and for information on areas such as employer incentives, funded programs and business resources.”

Please contact BIEDO on 0400 695 456 or community@biedo.org.au with any business-related enquiries.
