SMALL BUSINESS CONFIDENCE – AGAIN UNDER THE NATIONAL AVERAGE

Tuesday 31 July 2018

Sensis Business Index (SBI) survey has once again; shown Victoria lags behind our neighbouring states of New South Wales and Tasmania concerning confidence from the small business sector.

We now fall below the national average, dropping a further point from the last survey. 

One of the key findings from the survey is the lack of confidence the small business sector has towards the Victorian State Government and their policies.

Victorian businesses have become more negative about the Andrews Government, with the net balancing falling from -8 to -10. 

The last time Victoria enjoyed a positive rating was in December 2014, (+1). 

Not surprising, given the destructive policies of the Andrews Government and their persistent curtailing to the union movement. 

Quotes attributable to Neale Burgess MP, Shadow Minister for Small and Medium Enterprises:

“Time and time again, Victorian small businesses have sent a clear message to Daniel Andrews, that he and his government must stop taking notice of the unions and start listening to their concerns”.

“He must immediately restore faith in the small business community, by providing a clear direction of policies aimed at bettering their everyday lives”.
