In Victoria, small businesses make up 98% of all business and account for half of the private sector jobs in Victoria. Supporting small business supports the Victorian economy. We need to prioritise local business and provide greater opportunities out of the pandemic.

Over the last 11 years I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with and advocate for many amazing small businesses. I will:

  • Work in Parliament towards cutting through bureaucratic red tape and excessive regulation surrounding the burden small businesses face in the current economic climate.
  • Greater consultation with small business before introducing any policies that directly affect them.
  • Create a greater awareness and marketing to promote the schemes available through Jobs Victoria for small businesses and entrepreneurs to navigate the tough economic circumstances we are currently facing.
