In the lead-up to the election, small business is too big to ignore

28 /08/ 2013 Comments are Closed

As Australians prepare to go to the polls on 7 September, some tourism-related announcements have been made, but we’d like to see more! Labor has pledged more than $3 million for a Puffing Billy discovery centre at Emerald Park Lake in the Dandenong Ranges, while the Coalition has promised $25 million for the upgrade of the Great Ocean Road (to be matched by state government funding) and visa changes to better facilitate Chinese visitation to Australia.

To ensure the voice of small business is heard in the lead-up to the election, join the national chamber campaign Small Business, Too Big to Ignore. The campaign, being run by VECCI in conjunction with the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and other state chambers, has already attracted more than 86,000 voices.
