Mr VASTA (Bonner) (13:40): Last Wednesday, Brisbane's Southside Chamber of Commerce held a successful mini business expo. Unfortunately, because of the sitting week, I couldn't be there, but my wonderful team was able to represent me there. The expo gave the chamber's members the opportunity to meet and network with other business owners, as well as local organisations and government representatives.

It's yet another event from the Southside Chamber of Commerce to help support and grow businesses on Brisbane's south side. The chamber committee is made of up amazing volunteers, and I commend them for their great work and all they do to help small businesses in the area grow. I particularly commend their president, Kathleen Lewis; and their vice-president, Kim Peries, who are such strong advocates for the chamber's members. I'm glad to support the business events the chamber holds throughout the year. I'd encourage local south-side businesses to sign up and become members, for the support and networking opportunities that they provide. I'm a proud member of the Southside Chamber of Commerce myself. And I'm proud to be part of a government that has passed legislation delivering company tax relief for over 15,000 businesses in Bonner five years early, as well as extending the $20,000 instant asset write-off for another year.
