Casino became the centre of regional investment when Deputy Premier and MinisterĀ for Regional New South Wales, Minister for Skills, and Minister for Small Business, John Barilaro launched the Regional NSW Investment Prospectus at Richmond Dairies last week.

The Deputy Premier was joined by an international investment delegation and regional MP’s Thomas George, Chris Gulaptis and Ben Franklin MLC on a tour of the high tech butter factory before the launch.

“Never before has a trade delegation of this size and stature visited Casino,” Mr Barilaro said.

The new investment website’s aim is to maximise opportunities for investment in food. The Northern Rivers’ innovative agriculture and food manufacturing industries are the fastest growing in the region. Many of our region’s food manufacturers are already accessing export markets. The new prospectus will support greater opportunities for the expanding market.

The Deputy Premier indicated the State Government would be doing everything it could to increase connectivity in the region to help industry boom. This included investment in regional roads, trains, airports and the internet.
