The Committee for Greater Shepparton was established to unite the region's business and community leaders to influence public policy, advocate on issues to strengthen the economy and make the region a more vibrant place to live. The Committee is supported by over 80 of the most influential businesses, community organisations and statutory authorities from the region.
In his “Intercity” report, leading Australian rail expert John Hearsch described Shepparton as “today’s poor rail relation”. Improved rail connectivity with Melbourne is a key focus of the Committee.
David Yencken stated that a creative city must be one that is committed to fostering creativity among its citizens. Richard Florida's theory is that regions with high concentrations of technology workers, artists, musicians exhibit a higher level of economic development.
