Queensland Rescue ‘A Team’ On Standby For Small Business

March 1, 2013

In the wake of ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald, Australia’s peak body for small business advice says its members are ready to support a Federal Government initiative to help affected small businesses in Queensland get back on their feet quickly, says Business Enterprise Centres Australia (BECA) chairman Jack Hughes.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Minister for Small Business Chris Bowen have announced a new $2 million Queensland Natural Disaster Assistance program to help small businesses impacted by recent natural disasters to access expert advice and assistance so they can recover and grow.

“In a critical restoration mission like this, local, well-seasoned advice is crucial in helping small businesses find their footing and play their important roles in towns and suburbs,” says Mr Hughes.
