Hinchinbrook Shire Council is rolling out an economic development program, starting in February, to assist local businesses.
It follows last year’s Business Development Survey, aimed at assessing key issues for businesses and determining how the council could further assist in the growth and development of the local economy. Sixty-eight businesses took part.
“Council is dedicated to the growth and development of our region and part of that is looking at how we can assist our businesses to thrive, increase their exposure and create jobs to strengthen our community,” Hinchinbrook Shire Deputy Mayor Mary Brown said.
The economic development program will deliver workshops focusing on the top priorities identified by the local business community and provide networking opportunities for businesses within the region.
Topics covered will include social media for business, finance and tax information, and capability statement preparation advice as well as critical topics from the Build a Better Business Program.
