Bega Valley Shire Council has a number of initiatives, in collaboration with the business community, designed to underpin economic recovery.
The Bega Valley Business Support Group (BSG) is a coordinated group of local business advisors who work together to provide free effective business services and programs to help you thrive and grow.
When you register with the BSG, your business support requirements are identified, and you are connected to the BSG member best placed to support your current and future business needs.
Investing in tourism promotion
We have invested $60,000 in tourism promotion and marketing to support the Bega Valley and Sapphire Coast. The Sapphire Coast - Start Feeling it! campaign is in full swing to reinvigorate our vital tourism economy.
Post-COVID-19, events will be a big focus and an important part of leading a tourism-led economic recovery. Our aim is to develop a long-term event strategy and seek investment in a strong suite of flagship events.
We have a Civil Works Panel for local contractors to register their interest in becoming involved in civil recovery works. Keeping local work local as much as possible supports better and more sustainable recovery.
You should also register with the ICN Gateway, where government and private project owners list their projects. Potential suppliers can search for work using this project database.
