As the native forest transition progresses and the newly-formed community and industry sub-group waits to meet for the first time, the Manjimup Chamber of Commerce and Industry will have a representative on the committee. The community and industry sub-group has been created to assist in the formation of the support packages to aid communities which will be badly affected by the imminent closure of the native logging industry. The Manjimup Chamber president Bevan Eatts will be a member of the sub-group, alongside representatives from the Manjimup, Nannup and Bridgetown-Greenbushes Shires, the Australian Workers Union, the South West Development Commission and the Forestry Industries Federation of WA. At the last Manjimup Chamber general meeting Mr Eatts said he would be a representative for the Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry on the sub-group to make sure the Manjimup area was fairly represented during the formation of the third set of support packages. Thus far the native timber Just Transition plan has yielded the finalised version of the workers transition support packages and the draft copy of the business support packages.
