Regional Development Australia and Riverland have now completed the Murraylands Jobs, Growth & Investment Snapshot 2014-2016. The report indicates that businesses are optimistic about the future of the region as it continues to expand and grow.

Over 500 public and private businesses throughout the Murraylands region were asked to complete a survey via mail, phone or interviews. Respondents were asked to predict their staffing variations and capital investment for the coming three years and to make separate predictions for average, good, and bad years as well as the likeliness of the investment occurring. the numbers quoted throughout this article reflect an optimistic but conservative expectation of business throughout the region. 

Brenton Lewis, Chief Executive, commends the report to stakeholders as a tool to help inform planning, support enterprises into the future and realise the increasing potential of the Murraylands region.
