REGIONAL SMALL BUSINESS - AN ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE
A webinar with Terry Rawnsley, Principal & Partner, SGS Economics & Planning.
15 October 2020, 12-1 pm
The Australian economy isn’t a single entity, rather it is a collection of local communities each with its own history, strengths and challenges. The patchwork economy we have seen over the past decade has become ever more disparate. The drought has affected many rural economies, bushfires have devasted some communities and COVID-19 has put much of the economy into an ‘induced coma’. Where does Armidale Sit within this patchwork economy and what are the strategies that can be employed to unlock growth in the small business sector.
