Members of Advance Morwell, which is a business and community representative organisation, have asked if funding that was initially earmarked for Shanghai Electric under the Advanced Lignite Demonstration Program but not actually allocated will be redirected into the Latrobe Valley for other economic development programs. Joint funding of $25 million by the state and federal governments was announced in 2014, but unfortunately the Shanghai project, which was to be based in the Latrobe Valley, did not eventuate. Our local community is eager to understand if the state government’s portion of the funding could be reallocated into other local economic development programs, whether they be energy and resource related or otherwise. The Andrews government axed the coalition’s successful $15 million Latrobe Valley Industry and Infrastructure Fund, leaving our community without a specific economic development fund. Therefore the redirecting of this funding into our community is critically important to boost business confidence.
