WANNEROO Business Association (WBA) hosted a forum following the release of the Federal and State budgets, with four Liberal MPs there to answer questions from small business operators.
Wanneroo MLA Paul Miles said the State Government wanted to keep WA business and industry strong.
“Growing WA business is most important to the State Government, which is why we are working towards the construction of a Perth-Darwin highway to assist industry in the north,” Mr Miles said.
He noted that a prominent theme emerging from discussion with local businesses was the need for training and apprenticeship opportunities to be better promoted in the local community.
“What we need now is to ensure that avenues are correctly set up and promoted in the community to ensure that local small businesses can easily access these training and apprenticeship services,” he said.
“This forum provided the opportunity to communicate with local business regarding what they need.”
North Metropolitan MLC Peter Katsambanis, Moore MHR Ian Goodenough and Cowan MHR Luke Simpkins also attended the event.
