The NSW Government's Business Bus is going to be visiting small businesses in the Dubbo electorate next week, to provide specialist advice to business owners looking to become more productive and profitable.
Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant said that small business owners in the region can hop on board the bus next week where they will receive independent advice from experienced business advisors.
Mr Grant said that in 2017 the Business Bus visited more than 160 towns, covering more than 56,000 kilometres and this year is set to be even bigger.
“The Business Bus is part of the NSW Government’s multi-million dollar Business Connect program which supports small businesses to thrive in metropolitan and regional economies.”
“The bus will travel across the State with experts on board to share advice on small business strategies including marketing, financial and legal advice and business planning.”
"Speaking to an advisor can help a business operator take the vital next step, whether they're just starting out, wanting to ensure their business is sustainable or aiming to go global.”
The Business Bus will visit the following locations between 9am and 3pm:
- Gulgong - Coronation Park, Mayne St (across from the Bakery), Monday 21 May
- Mudgee – Cnr Church & Clarke Sts (next to Shell Service Station), Tuesday 22 May
- Wellington – Namina Crescent (adjacent to the Council library), Thursday 24 May
- Dubbo – Macquarie St (adjacent Cyril Flood Rotunda), Friday 25 May
Mr Grant said the 710,000 small businesses across NSW are the lifeblood of the State’s economy. They represent almost 98 per cent of all NSW businesses; employ almost half the State's workforce and generate $47 billion in annual wages and salaries.
