Impact of the global financial crisis on regional Australia
Final

CHAIR (Ms King) —I declare open this public hearing of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government for its inquiry into the impact of the global financial crisis on regional Australia. This is the second of the committee’s hearings. Our first was in Burnie yesterday. I am sure that the witnesses appearing before us this morning and this afternoon will be equally of interest when they provide evidence to the committee as the people yesterday were. Today we are hearing from local councils, economic and regional development organisations, RDA Tasmania as well as business representatives. I welcome everyone here this morning.
