The campaign calls on the next Federal Government to address three key issues:
Mr Pearson said the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry network will see the campaign reach into every community through state and territory chambers, national and state industry associations, and local chambers and industry association members.
“Our members represent over 300,000 businesses employing millions of people across the country, in every sector of the economy,” Mr Pearson said.
“This is your newsagent, your butcher, your pharmacist, your dentist, and your local cafe.
“These are the truckies that deliver groceries to your local supermarket, the sparkies that fix your lights, the mechanics that fix your car and the builders that renovate your home.
“These are the men and women running small businesses that give young Australians their first job and train apprentices for rewarding careers.
“This is Small Business – and it is a big deal.”
