Following the weekend’s election results, the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network are keen to see the elected leaders focus on getting our region back on track to boost our economy and support our local businesses.
With the election done and dusted the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network congratulates the newly elected State Members and Premier Anastacia Palaszczuk, and are keen to collaborate with all levels of government and community to get down to business and focus on the delivery of good policy to drive industry on the Sunshine Coast.
SCBWN president Roz White recognises that assurance measures to staying safe is important to Queenslanders, but she encourages a focus towards business to move us forward.
“It is clear, Premier Palaszczuk built that safety assurance with Queensland voters through her strong stance to keep the borders closed; now it is time to build business confidence by opening up markets, supporting Queensland manufacturing, creating local jobs and adopting policy settings supportive of local enterprise,” shared Roz White.
The SCBWN is seeing great results among some of their members with the uplift in people eager to relocate and visit the Sunshine Coast driving property markets and bolstering segments of the local economy. However, other components of this market remain annihilated with international travel in complete shutdown.
“The current ‘rocks and diamonds’ economy has triggered new economic settings. It is critical elected leaders understand and navigate through the issues to implement effective measures which support and solve the arising challenges,” added Roz White.
Recognised as the peak body representing professional and businesswomen in the region, the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network is driven by their purpose to empower and celebrate women to achieve in business. Collaborating with industry groups, the Sunshine Coast Chamber Alliance, and various levels of government, the SCBWN is dedicated to advancing opportunity for our region.
