Directory gets new face
IT is now easier to stay up to date with news and events related to Aboriginal small business in WA with the Aboriginal Business Directory WA’s new Facebook page.
Established in 2012, the directory promotes products and services from more than 200 Aboriginal businesses in WA to potential buyers in government, private and not-for-profit sectors.
The Facebook page, at www.facebook.com/aboriginal directorywa, gives the directory a new audience.
Small business commissioner David Eaton said the Facebook page was a tool that would help to build the Aboriginal business community through the sharing of news and links to useful, relevant and interesting information.
“The ABDWA has been wellreceived, exceeding expectations, and the Facebook page will enable us to build on this success,” he said.
“The Facebook page provides a great way for the Aboriginal business community, along with those seeking to use businesses listed on the directory, to receive updates on the ABDWA, small business sector news, services, workshops and business opportunities.
“It also highlights how the directory is having a positive impact on Aboriginal communities and individuals through employment and developing businesses.”
The directory was the result of a partnership between government and private enterprise and addresses one of the Council of Australian Government’s seven action areas to overcoming indigenous disadvantage in economic participation.
“The ABDWA provides a great opportunity for WA’s Aboriginal businesses to showcase their products and services to a wider audience,” Mr Eaton said.
“It provides an avenue for Aboriginal businesses to promote their capabilities to prospective clients nationally and internationally and the launch of the associated Facebook page will further assist this.”
