President’s Letter 2020

26th January 2020

Dear Members

Welcome to 2020 and an unfamiliar situation.

Australia has always been cushioned from international incidents, global financial events and the unfortunate glare of world politics by being a very large country with a small population  in an uninhabited timezone.

That seems to have changed. The world is now re-evaluating our country and we find ourselves under scrutiny for the first time. And our Government doesn’t seem to want to be involved on the bigger stage. We have a faltering economy and multiple concurrent national disasters. It’s really important that as business owners, employees, mums, dads and citizens young and old, we focus on what we can achieve for our country.

The one thing we can all contribute to, is the Economy.

At Brisbane West Chamber of Commerce, 2020 is about helping businesses connect with each other on a trustworthy basis. By making warm introductions, businesses of all size can interact with each other and this will bring transactions, revenue and GDP for the country.

The measure that politicians like to measure is jobs. Just inventing jobs makes no difference. Only a vibrant economy can produce a sustainable job market.

Let’s start 2020 by coming together in a trusted environment for mutual benefit.

Help us help you help Australia for a better economy in 2020

Thanks

Ian Reynolds

President
