Today’s announcement by Cann Group to construct a new medicinal cannabis production facility to Mildura is a coup for the region and welcomed by the Victorian Liberal Nationals.
Shadow Minister for Regional Victoria and Decentralisation Peter Walsh said the new jobs created by the investment would be a welcome boost for Mildura.
“Getting the businesses of the future out of Melbourne and into the regions is exactly what Victoria needs to decentralise our population” Mr Walsh said.
“More job opportunities in Mildura mean more new opportunities for locals and for new families to move to the area. This sought of decentralisation means more kids in our schools more families shopping locally and more people in our sporting clubs and community organisations.”
Cann Group’s announcement to the ASX said they intend to construct a state-of-the-art greenhouse in the Mildura region at a total construction cost of $130 million.
