Federal Small Business Ministers’ election debate tomorrow

Federal Minister for Small Business Craig Emerson and Shadow Minister for Small Business Bruce Bilson will be in Brisbane tomorrow for a town hall style debate on small business issues.

Small Business MinisterMore than eighty small business owners will gather at the Colmslie Hotel, Morningside for the national forum where they will, for the first time, be given the opportunity to confront both Craig Emerson and Bruce Bilson with their growing concerns over the future for small business in Australia.

Small businesses currently represent more than 96 percent of the Australian workforce but are largely ignored and disregarded by the Federal Government, with its substandard, inefficient policies causing mounting unrest amongst small business owners.

This event gives the two Ministers for Small Business the only chance before the election on August 21 to reassure concerned small business owners that their political party is committed to supporting this vital group, which makes up the majority of the Australian Workforce.

Hosted by the Australian Small Business Group that represents the rights of more than a thousand small businesses Australia wide, organisation founder Terri Cooper launched the Small Business Forum due to her own frustration over the lack of attention small business owners were receiving in this year’s election trail.

With less than three weeks until Australia decides on its next Prime Minister, it is now more important than ever for small businesses to hear how the major parties plan to represent them and for them to have their say about their major concerns, before the nation votes.

What do you think?
