The status quo & opportunities

Where are we now? What's our regional identity? Where do we do well and where do we fall short?

We analyse our eco-system, where it's come from and where, with the right leadership and collaboration, it can go.


We all have a role to play in making material progress in the next 12-18 months - as individuals, as organisations and as regions.

Through the document you will find opportunities highlighted in response to specific challenges.
