Building momentum in the Yorke and Mid North

As we keep a close eye on the eastern states, momentum is building in the Yorke and Mid North’s economic recovery. The RDAYMN board are seizing strategic opportunities to ensure the region recovers as quickly as possible and has long term diversified economic growth prospects. The role of RDAYMN has been to help facilitate collaboration between all levels of government to ensure no one is left behind in responding to the challenges that COVID-19 has brought. We are listening to business and industries to discover how we all can best adapt to emerge with a stronger and more dynamic economy.

The forward vision of the RDAYMN board is to build on the assets that make our region such a great place to live and work. This will be achieved by collaborating with as many industries, businesses and community members to enable the best ideas and solutions to become a reality. The economic rise will require new ways of thinking and doing business, but we are a resourceful region that always come together to build strong foundations for the future. Our recovery plan has set out a pathway to achieve these goals by being here to support all businesses. The RDAYMN team can help assist, plan and implement businesses own recovery plans to carry out their day-to-day activities with confidence.
