Small business owners are being encouraged to voice their concerns and frustrations when Small Business Commissioner Yasmin King arrives in Sydney next month.
As part of the NSW Government’s pre-election Small Business Action Plan, Commissioner Yasmin King has embarked on a state-wide listening tour to consult with small businesses.
On Tuesday 3 July, the Commissioner will be at the MLC Centre in Martin Place and the NSW Minister for Small Business Katrina Hodgkinson says small business operators shouldn’t shy away from proposing suggestions about how the sector could be better supported.
“This will also be an opportunity for local small business operators to voice any concerns they are facing in their daily business operations,” Hodgkinson said.
And in an attempt to resolve small business challenges, the NSW Government says it is prepared to equip the Commissioner with the necessary resources to help her address the sector’s concerns. This makes it vital that small business operators participate in the consultation process regarding the proposed legislation, which relate to the role and functions of the Commissioner, Hodgkinson added.
The proposed legislation will give the Commissioner legal authority to deal with unfair business procedures and meet current and future small business demands.
“…and this consultation process will ensure the NSW Small Business Commissioner legislation reflects best practice,” Hodgkinson said.
