SUPPORTING THE PROFESSIONALS SHAPING QUEENSLAND COMMUNITIES
The Queensland Small Business Commissioner (QSBC) is working in partnership with Councils across Queensland to develop the local Small Business Friendly Councils (SBFC) initiative as a commitment to be mindful of small businesses, their issues and priorities when making final decisions for the local community.
Small businesses are at the heart of the Queensland economy and our regional communities. They create local jobs, grow the local economy, and provide essential goods and services. But just as importantly, small businesses help create attractive, liveable communities. They also foster civic pride and help attract people and investment into the area. Local Councils play a significant role in supporting and influencing how businesses in their areas start and grow.
445,000 Queensland small businesses create more than 914,000 local employment opportunities, and contribute around $120 billion per year to the economy.
Visit the QSBC website to see how this initiative may be able to assist your council and community.
