Business poll call

GYMPIE businesses have been encouraged again to have their say in the fifth biannual Gympie regional business confidence survey.

The survey was opened to participation last month and the Gympie Regional Council said yesterday responses had been strong.

But it said it wanted more businesses to have their say, particularly as this was the first year the Gympie Chamber of Commerce had partnered with the council to offer $200 vouchers to local restaurants.

Local business operators are asked to go online and give their thoughts to help provide direction for the economic development of the Gympie region.

The survey aims to find out information from businesses about their local trading conditions, and if past surveys are anything to go by, will uncover in-depth information from businesses across the entire region.

Mayor Ron Dyne has said the council is strongly committed to economic development in the region and this survey is an important part of the overall strategy.

"We need accurate and timely information about business conditions along with ideas direct from the business community on ways in which we can further assist our broad economic base," he said.
