Business Expansion and Retention Program – continuing for 2009

By March 17, 2009No Comments

This afternoon I participated in the continuation of the Maroondah Business and Retention Program, a council initiative designed to receive qualitative feedback into the state of businesses within the municipality.

The program involves one-on-one interviews with business owners and employers to gain an insight in the challenges and opportunities facing businesses that are based within Maroondah.

Today’s interviews, which included a home-based business and a large employer, provided a contrast between the diverse needs of businesses across the municipality.

Given the growing economic uncertainty, it is imperative that Maroondah is aware of the needs of its business community and acts where it can on impediments to the sustainability and growth of our business sector.

The business expansion and retention program provides an opportunity to hear first-hand the needs of our business community to assist in promoting the economic growth within our municipality.
