Victorian council hopes to lure foreign investment
THE SWAN HILL COUNCIL is holding farm visits for investors on the Federal Government’s Significant Investor Visa (SIV) program. The council’s Muriel Scholz said she understood the concerns some people had around foreign investment in Australian agriculture.
But she said the council’s visits were an attempt to expand markets for local produce.
“We encourage people to come in and buy our products,” she said.
“If they are interested in looking at property that’s something we can facilitate as well.”
