Launched in September 2009, the Outback Business Network (based at the Desert Knowledge Centre in Alice Springs) works with nine regional officers from across remote Australia to link business people and projects. By networking people in targeted sectors by teleconferences and other events, the Outback Business Network aims to connect small businesses, help reduce marketing and communications costs, and undertake market development projects to increase revenues.
Food – and local value adding – is one of the Network’s target sectors. To learn more or join the network, visit:
