Member Update: The Road to Recovery

Thursday 28 May, 2020 | By: Colin Fruk

This morning CCIQ CEO Stephen Tait attended the first meeting of the Industry Recovery Alliance – a group established by Premier Palaszczuk to get our economy going and people into jobs. CCIQ is glad to be representing the small business sector, which comprises a range of delegates speaking for all kinds of industry and community interests.

Stephen took the opportunity to commend the Government for its initial response and table our Recovery Plan for Queensland business. The Chamber has been influential in securing the support business needed, especially for small and medium employers, since COVID first struck. Many of the relief measures we advocated for were adopted and implemented by the State Government including payroll tax waivers, concessional loans, rent relief and electricity rebates.

Nonetheless, there is no time to rest on these achievements. The results of last week’s Pulse Survey show the magnitude of economic devastation across our state.

At the meeting we highlighted additional funding and initiatives to the Premier that need to be adopted to get Queensland moving again.

CCIQ wants to thank all the local chambers and member businesses who have contacted us with comments and concerns. The feedback has helped us greatly to achieve results, and chart a way forward with the Recovery Plan. 

We’re confident that the Government will continue to listen and adopt some of the next “Revive” steps in our plan within days. 

We’re also hopeful that the Premier will heed our advice and relax some restrictions earlier than announced. Bringing forward some re-openings before 12 June will mean a lot to businesses and get Queensland moving again. 

As the economy gears back up over the next few months, CCIQ will be looking to Premier Palaszczuk to run a new style of government for a new kind of Queensland. Rebuilding means fast-tracking projects. It means investing more in Queensland’s high-quality products and the businesses that produce them. And it means investing in future industries by building our circular economy and digital infrastructure throughout the state. 

Successful local businesses are the key to prosperous local communities. We will keep driving that message at every available chance.
