Georges River to survey local business

Business and industry leaders are being encouraged to have their say on the future of Georges River’s economic growth, with Georges River Council launching a survey to learn about the challenges being faced in the local government area.

Council says it hopes to better understand business sentiment, shape programs and initiatives to support local business through Council’s Economic Development Strategy and develop a benchmark for future surveys as part of the current survey.

Georges River Mayor, Nick Katris said the survey would help Council better recognise the strengths, opportunities, challenges and culture of the local businesses and economy.

“Council invested $47 million as part of the Economic and Social Recovery Plan in response to COVID-19,” said Mayor Katris. 

“We want to help bring the vibrancy back as our economic recovery continues, and plan support that addresses needs to ensure local businesses thrive.

“With uncertain trading conditions during the pandemic, we want to hear from you so that we can effectively move forward with our retail and hospitality businesses and drive local economic growth.”

The online survey released today asks for input across various key focus areas including:

  • COVID-19 impact;
  • Business confidence;
  • Skills shortages;
  • Traditional vs online sales;
  • Future expectations.

The survey will be open until Friday, 8 April 2022.
