Confidence at seven-yr high
CONFIDENCES in Queensland’s small businesses are at a seven year high according to the latest Sensis Business Index survey.
The recent survey shows small businesses among the state are growing in size, confidence and are now the most positive influencers on the nation’s economy.
Treasurer Curtis Pitt said the survey’s result backed the Palaszczuk Government’s policies in generating the right economic conditions to allow small and medium size business to thrive.
“This is the latest in a string of reports from NAB, Westpac, Deloitte and the ABS showing that under Labor, Queensland’s unemployment is lower, growth is higher and both consumer and business confidence are returning to our state,” said Mr Pitt.
Mr Pitt said while the results of the survey are healthy, the state government won’t give up on improving Queensland’s economy.
“We know there is still work to be done and our unrelenting focus is on driving the Queensland economy.”
