Deputy prime minister set to have breakfast in Lismore

THERE will be some big political names at the Lismore Chamber of Commerce's next breakfast meeting on April 14.

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, who is also the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, will be at the event, which will be held at TAFE's Lismore campus in Conway St.

He will be joined by Senator Fiona Nash, the Minister for Regional Development, Minister for Rural Health and Minister for Regional Communications.

Darren Chester, the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, and Michael McCormack, the Assistant Defence Minister, are also on the guest list.

Our very own local Page MP, Kevin Hogan, completes the group.

The topic of the business breakfast is: How can collaboration create opportunity for your business?

The Lismore Chamber of Commerce says it is well known that partnerships or alliances are an "innovative and cost effective way to develop new or existing business by leveraging off each other's innovation, credibility and customer base".
