Sunshine Coast business owners will have an opportunity to provide feedback on what’s important to them at a FREE small business forum to be held tomorrow night in Maroochydore.
 
Shadow Minister for Small Business and Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson will meet with local business owners at a forum to be held at Sol Bar, Ocean Street, Maroochydore on Tuesday 17 April at 5pm.

Ms Simpson has invited a panel of local entrepreneurs to share their experiences and have their say today on what the Government can do to help them ride the wave of growing business confidence on the Sunshine Coast.
 
Ms Simpson said that attendees would be invited to ask questions and give feedback on what’s important to them to grow their business and employ more locals.  A further forum will be held at The Dock, Mooloolaba on Tuesday 8th May at 5pm.
 
Ms Simpson said that the Sunshine Coast has such a great future and she wants to ensure that small business owners are not hindered from growing their business by onerous government policy and costly red tape.
 
“We have seen consistently high levels of business confidence across the Sunshine Coast for several years, however we want to ensure that small businesses are reaping the benefits of this so that they can succeed, make a profit and employ more people,” Ms Simpson said.

“Small businesses are the state’s biggest jobs creators and are often run by mums and dads who juggle family pressures and put their capital on the line to make a living.
 
"The LNP is working with small businesses to ensure they can continue to drive our local economy and create jobs.
 
"Small businesses are Queensland's lifeblood and should be given the tools to be successful and grow and be successful, not burdened by new taxes.
