MEDIA RELEASE - Macarthur Business Survey Launched

1 June 2009

This week saw the official launch of the Macarthur Business Survey. The MACROC initiative is aimed to develop an understanding of local business insights into current trends and the future outlook of trading conditions, as well as their perceptions about the advantages and constraints of doing business in the Macarthur region.

MACROC President, Cr Anoulack Chanthivong, said the information would assist MACROC in its review of the economic development strategy for the Macarthur region.

“Participation in the survey is a great opportunity for businesses in the Macarthur region to contribute to shaping the future direction of economic development in our area,” Cr Chanthivong said.

“It is vitally important that we engage the business community as widely as possible in the review so that the strategies and initiatives that we implement in future are robust and closely aligned to the needs and aspirations of local businesses and our community.”

“Working with our local businesses will make sure that our economic development strategy continues to promote better economic growth and employment opportunities for our area,” Cr Chanthivong said.

The survey has been distributed directly to businesses on the MACROC database, participation by all businesses across the region is encouraged. Businesses can complete the survey online or in hard copy by no later than 22nd June. The results of the survey will be provided to participating businesses. It is anticipated that the survey findings will assist local enterprises in making decisions that benefit their business.
