G21 plans for post-COVID challenge
Surviving the COVID-19 reality has been challenging for us all. Transitioning back to a new type of normal will potentially be even more challenging.

We have seen the devastating impact of the pandemic on families, businesses and the most vulnerable in our community.

The region has the necessary foundations to rebuild strongly provided we work together.

At G21 we are already preparing for the part we can play in the recovery, in concert with government, business and other bodies across the region.
