Why Whitehorse?

Federal and state governments create policies and allocate money to national, state, regional, and local economic growth on an annual basis. Because of its strong contact with citizens and business communities, local government is a vital stakeholder and local leader.

In response to their local conditions, the concerns, opportunities, and techniques chosen to enable and promote economic growth can and should differ amongst councils. Local government's ability to recognise and respond to local situations is what makes it so crucial in promoting local and regional economic growth. Local governments, on the other hand, have limited jurisdiction, resources, and a broad range of defined functions.

As a result, it is critical that local governments carefully establish the strategic impact regions, priority focus areas, and economic development principles that will steer economic development in their jurisdictions.
