SMALL BUSINESS ROADSHOW HITS DARWIN

The Shadow Minister for Small Business, Brendan O’Connor, will today visit Darwin, to host the next of Labor’s national small business events.

Today is an opportunity for active engagement and consultation - a chance to listen and learn about the challenges and opportunities facing Australian small businesses, particularly in Darwin.

There are 4.9 million people employed in Australian small businesses, accounting for 44.2 per cent of all private sector employees. In Darwin, where today’s event will be held, there are 6,674 small businesses.

Cultivating successful small businesses in our regions and our cities is vitally important to our growing economy.

Labor recognises that small and family businesses come in all shapes and across many sectors, from the single tradie to the tech start up or even family foundry exporting to the world.

Small businesses are unique and face a variety of challenges and the current government takes small businesses for granted.

Small business is the backbone of our economy and they deserve to have their voices heard and respected.
