Business growth needed to improve CBD vibrancy

In order to create more vibrancy and diversity in our city, the Weatherill Labor Government must do more to encourage and support business growth.

A survey commissioned by the AHA has revealed that two-thirds of people said more businesses and jobs would help boost vibrancy in Adelaide’s CBD.

“However the sad reality is that after 10 years of this Labor Government, South Australian businesses are burdened with the highest taxes in the nation,” Shadow Consumer Affairs Minister Mark Goldsworthy said.

“In fact, a number of Adelaide hotels have recently closed their doors, including the Crown and Sceptre.”

A MYOB small business survey released last week also revealed that only 10 per cent of South Australian small businesses are satisfied with the Weatherill Government’s small business policy.

“Labor has simply failed to create an environment that encourages and supports business growth in South Australia,” Mr Goldsworthy said.

“In order to create more diversity in our city, we need to be encouraging and supporting business growth.”
