Growing the local economy

How many new jobs would be created in Gippsland if we grew the local economy by $700m?

If every business in Gippsland diverted 5% of purchasing spend to businesses in the region, the local economy would grow by $700 million this year!

GROW Gippsland Compact Member, Latrobe City Council, is playing its part by using VendorPanel Marketplace to help local organisations participate in their RFQ process.

Delivered in partnership with ArcBlue, the Regional Procurement Platform pilot aims to increase the visibility of local suppliers and reduce the leakage of spend outside of the Gippsland region.
