NSW Regions

What we do

  • We use news and social media to make the public, business owners and government aware of issues 
  • We collaborate with other industry bodies and community organisations to boost our influence
  • We advocate to improve the business environment for all businesses
  • By making businesses stronger we contribute to building strong and resilient local communities

How we do it

  • First, we listen to our members through regular surveys, group and individual meetings, phone advice lines, policy committees and advisory councils to identify emerging challenges for business
  • Then our experts develop policy solutions that make it easier to do business which we then recommend to government for implementation
  • We produce well-argued, compelling papers or submissions to back up our advocacy 
  • We meet face to face with politicians, their staff and public servants to put the case for business
  • Government seeks our input on the needs of business because we have a strong and credible voice backed by our in-house expertise and the thousands of businesses we hear from
  • The issues we advocate on include red tape reduction, business taxation, workforce skills, infrastructure, workplace health and safety and workplace relations
