Call to cel­e­brate en­gine room of our econ­omy

Pilbara News - - News -

Fed­eral Mem­ber for Du­rack Melissa Price has called on Pil­bara res­i­dents to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of lo­cal busi­nesses and char­i­ties by nom­i­nat­ing them for the 2017 Telstra Busi­ness Awards.

Now in their 25th year, the Telstra Busi­ness Awards are renowned for show­cas­ing and cel­e­brat­ing the achieve­ments and en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit of Aus­tralia’s most bril­liant small and medium-sized busi­nesses and char­i­ties.

Ms Price said that small and medium busi­nesses and char­i­ties were the en­gine room of the econ­omy and de­serve to be recog­nised.

“Lo­cal busi­ness own­ers and lead­ers drive growth and de­liver jobs for many Aus­tralians by pour­ing their hearts and souls into their busi­nesses ev­ery sin­gle day,” she said.

“It’s im­por­tant they are recog­nised for their con­tri­bu­tions, not just to the econ­omy, but to the com­mu­nity as well.

“The Telstra Busi­ness Awards is a won­der­ful plat­form to cel­e­brate their achieve­ments, giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to re­ceive na­tional ac­claim and paving the way for oth­ers.”
