HUNDREDS of small business owners gained important advice on how to help their business thrive during the Sydney Hills Business Exchange.
The exchange, which was held on March 8, provided business owners the opportunity to meet government agencies and private organisations to discuss how they can run their business better.
The Hills mayor Yvonne Keane was pleased with the strong attendance figures at the annual expo.
“We want to see our local businesses grow and succeed – not only to continue our wonderful level of economic growth, but so residents can enjoy more jobs close to home,” Cr Keane said.
“That is why council is providing genuine assistance and support for local businesses in order to maintain the developing, progressive nature of our region and the economy.
“It’s our vision to facilitate sustainable economic development to promote industry growth, attract skilled employees and develop local employment prospects,”
The Hills region has one of the best growth domestic product (GDP) rates in Sydney, which indicates businesses in region are experiencing good growth.
Sydney Hills Business Chamber chairman Anthony Moss said he received great feedback from people who attended the exchange.
He encouraged people in The Hills business community to participate in the Sydney Hills Business Chamber’s Performance Sentiment Index (PSI), which gives business to offer their views on the state of the local economy and highlight concerns.
