Great progress has been made on cross border issues between ACT and NSW, including the Canberra Region Defence Industry Capability Directory and Canberra Region Industry Profiles. Other achievements include:
Destination Southern NSW and Visit Canberra collaborated on the Southern NSW Destination Management Plan
ACT and NSW assisted travel schemes alignment including for students with a disability
Alignment of responsible service of alcohol qualifications.
A full list of the progress made will be available in the annual report when released.
Each year, NSW and ACT develop a list of priority projects for that year (worklist) that align to the 2016 MOU for Regional Collaboration. Projects fall within one of three priority areas:
built and natural environments
integrated service planning.
The Commissioner plays a key role in advocating for NSW border communities and ensuring that projects reflect the needs of NSW constituents.
The Commissioner would like to thank all involved in these projects for their hard work and dedication.
