The Hunter Joint Organisation is working with the NSW Government, University of Newcastle and its member councils to develop an integrated suite of policies to help the Upper Hunter’s unique communities prosper over the long term.
The Upper Hunter – incorporating the council areas of Dungog, Singleton Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter – has traditionally played a key role in overall economic activity in NSW. The region supplies approximately 60 per cent of the state’s power needs, and is a major supplier of resources, mining expertise and agriculture to markets around the world.
The Upper Hunter Economic Diversification Action Plan articulates the region’s priorities for delivering a sustainable and secure economic future – levering existing regional advantages and expanding into new growth areas of agribusiness, renewable energy and the export of expertise in mining, advanced manufacturing and professional services to global markets.
