The Fremantle Chamber’s Greater Fremantle Action Plan is our guiding document to how we will work with our Board, Committees (Development & Infrastructure, Tourism, Small Business and Retail), Members and Stakeholders to directly benefit each industry sector, and the greater Fremantle region.
The action plan presents an opportunity for all stakeholders, including businesses, the City of Fremantle, other government agencies and the community to work together for the benefit of the region.
Each year the Fremantle Chamber Committees identify the strategic priorities for the year ahead. We welcome feedback on any of these priority areas of focus and will continue to update our progress under these action items in our Chamber Weekly each week, and via the advocacy action item pages below.
Contact the Fremantle Chamber CEO, or Membership and Committee Officer, for more information, or to share your views.
