Who better to discuss the recently published Australian Government “Backing Small Business” booklet with than The Hon Michael MacCormack MP, Federal Minister for Small Business.

Hope Kidd with Michael MacCormack

I attended a free breakfast organised by John Alexander MP, Member for Bennelong, at Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club on Friday 2 June 2017 where Mr MacCormack was the guest speaker.

As a small business owner I take every opportunity to attend talks, workshops and seminars on factors that affect my operations. So it was a pleasure to hear of Government initiatives to support me in my dream of building a successful Jamaican Products business. It is heartening that my 3 person team of me, myself and I, with occasional help from others, is a component of small business making up 99%of all Australian businesses. Even more astonishing is that together we contribute more than $380 billion to the Australian economy. I will remind myself, when the me part of the triad wants to take a break of the importance of pursuing our dream.

My triad is reading their way through the 33 page ‘Backing Small Business” booklet. I appreciate the Federal Government’s backing of small business through lower taxes, simpler paperwork and other initiatives to keep us small businesses in the driver’s seat. I plan to take up Mr MacCormack’s challenge to take advantage of the support offered by Government and see my dream become a reality.
