November 2, 2020

SYDNEY, Australia, 26 October 2020 – Vitex Pharmaceuticals’ Chief Executive Officer, Dr Aniss Chami, joins a panel discussion with Blacktown City Council.

Hosted by Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM, the community forum attracted strong interest and engagement with residents. This panel discussion, facilitated by Kerry Robinson, CEO of Blacktown City Council, ran online for the second time due to COVID-19.

The event focused on current activity in the Blacktown City Centre with emphasis on major projects, plans and issues, and touched on strategies to foster business growth.

Dr Chami expressed his optimism on how businesses can survive in Blacktown in the current and post pandemic phase. The key message delivered for businesses overall, and predominantly pharma, is to ensure there is a contingency within Australia in case of any future crises. “If anything, 2020 taught us that without a backup plan, things got very difficult, very fast”, mentioned Dr Chami.

Furthermore, Dr Chami discussed the importance of growing skilled jobs in Western Sydney, and the value of advanced manufacturing to Blacktown City and Western Sydney more broadly.
