Welcome to Economic Development Network

The Economic Development Network works to create opportunities for practitioners to flourish within a supportive professional environment. 
 
We do this in three ways:

  • provide forums for practitioners to exchange ideas and views 

  • provide opportunities to acquire skills and experience 

  • present brief and targeted value for money workshops for practitioners at convenient locations 

EDN is about regular networking with fellow practitioners and genuine life long learning.

We heard about the Shop Shapers project and other SME programs being undertaken in Ryde, and some of the things that City of Sydney is undertaking to support the Night Time Economy.
