Businesses asked for economic view

LIKE the weather, the economy is among the most common talking points in the community, especially the business community.

With that in mind, Gympie Regional Council would like to hear the thoughts of the business community on the subject of how they feel about current and upcoming economic conditions.

However, businesses have only today to meet the deadline.

Mayor Ron Dyne said the survey, the first of its kind for the region, had attracted a healthy 200 responses so far.

Cr Dyne thanked participating businesses this week and said the opinions and assessments of business people in the region were important information for council and the community.

“It is important to collect business responses to current economic conditions on a regular basis and this survey aims to gauge business confidence in the Gympie Region.

“We will all benefit from a collective view of business confidence across our region,” he said.

The survey is anonymous, but businesses wishing to receive a copy of the results can include their email address.

Further information is available from council on 5481 0744.
