The ACT Government and the Canberra Business Council are planning to run a series of 10 forums to listen to the concerns of small business in the ACT.

We here at the RiotACT have a concerning lack of ponies, and would very much like the Government to take care of that.

“The ACT Government is committed to listening to and working with small businesses in Canberra to help them resolve issues and to promote emerging opportunities,” the Chief Minister said.

“The best way to hear the concerns of small businesses owners and operators is to host forums where these issues can be directly canvassed and explained to government officials who have a direct hand in developing and rolling out policies that affect business operation in the ACT.”

Each of the Listening to Small Business Forums will be limited to around 15 participants and I encourage all those wanting to have their say to contact Mr Dean Seeley Manager, Canberra BusinessPoint. Email: dean.seeley@canberrabusinesscouncil.com.au Phone: 6247 4199.
