The President of the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce Chuck Davidson was in Flin Flon recently and met with executive members of the local Chamber. Past President Kory Eastman says one of the main discussions was on a northern strategy. He says the local Chamber has been participating in a sub-committee to develop a northern strategy to help focus efforts to develop and funnel investment into the north whether through government or private business. He says Davidson spoke about his aspirations for the sub-committee and the document that will be produced and how its going to help bring the larger northern communities together as a united voice with a direction not driven from Winnipeg but coming from the northern communities.
Eastman adds the work on this strategy will continue into the new year with more visits and discussions.
