Boasting a $10b economy, with over 100,000 jobs, and nearly 30,000 registered businesses, the ERA region is a significant economy with its own challenges and opportunities in the future.
The Business and Economic Development Group was formed to help promote the region and develop regional strategies for economic growth.

NBN network stage 2
Building on the success of Prospect and Tea Tree Gully (both ERA councils) in being part of the NBN stage 2 rollout, the ERA group will continue to work with NBN Co to develop extensive broadband capability for the ERA region.
Goals and future projects
Development of regional ED strategies
ERA regional Economic Development strategies will be developed
to identify issues and goals for business and employment growth,
attracting investment, nurturing new and emerging industries and
providing support for existing businesses.
A series of ERA presentations will be developed to enable officers
to easily communicate key aspects of the ERA economy to investors,
business groups, government leaders and community members.
