Economic Development Strategy

Carpentaria Shire Council has been working with the State Government to develop an Economic Diversification Strategy for the Shire. Councils Economic Development Strategy will emphasise the economic opportunities within our region and will be linked to the broader North West Queensland Economic Diversification Strategy.
