Queensland Small Business Sector Welcomes New Federal Ministry
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) welcomes the announcement of Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s new Ministry and have moved quickly to ensure the ministry is focused on the economy.
CCIQ is pleased to see the return of Small Business and Workplace Relations to Cabinet, with Minister’s Michaelia Cash and Kelly O’Dwyer appointed respectively.
General Manager of Advocacy, Kate Whittle said the need to move quickly on the issues facing the business community should be the immediate priority.
“The corporate tax rate debate is a sensible policy that is being held up senators displaying a recalcitrance towards a logical benchmark that impedes the efforts of small businesses throughout the economy.
“Australia’s economic story will be driven the small business sector over the coming decade and it is incumbent on those who occupy the treasury benches to ensure the most innovative part of the economy is front and centre of that narrative,” Ms Whittle said.
CCIQ is pleased with the expediency in which this new Ministry has been announced and now urges the federal government to get on with the job of setting a clear policy agenda for Queensland small business and indeed the nation.
We must work together to create the optimal business environment to ensure continued growth and prosperity and CCIQ looks forward to working with the federal government in order achieve that objective.
