Small Business Congratulates the Liberal-National Parties on Election Victory: CCIQ
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) has joined with regional chambers today to congratulate the Liberal-National coalition on the reelection of the Morrison Government as part of the 46th parliament of Australia.
Throughout this election, small businesses across Queensland and Australia have urged all parties to focus on serious reforms which will set the country up for decades to come.
In light of the recent passing of former Prime Minister, Robert (Bob) Hawke it is incumbent upon the major parties to arrive at a greater level of consensus of reform over the near term.
CCIQ CEO, Stephen Tait said that the Chamber of Commerce enjoys strong working relationships with both major parties and it is important now to focus on the reforms that matter.
“Australia is at its best when the focus on tax reform, boosting national incomes, and balancing the needs of our environment with sustainable commercial practices forms the core objectives of the body politic.
“We need to get our energy policy settings right, embrace the opportunity of being a leader in driving efficiencies in the environmental space offers, simplify the tax system and become the place to start a business.
“Throughout the election campaign the SME sector has been one voice saying the small business is a big deal and can play a pivotal role in achieving these outcomes,” Mr Tait said.
With a record number of pre-poll votes yet still to be counted the final result will not be known for several days.
