A boost to regional small business economic recovery

Published on Wednesday, 15 July 2020 at 8:43:04 AM

The McGowan Government is investing in the revitalisation of regional Western Australia through the 'Vibrant Regional Businesses' program, which will provide support and services to small local businesses as they recover from COVID-19.

The Vibrant Regional Businesses is a community-led investment program developed by Horizon Power in collaboration with eight regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) groups, including the East Kimberley CCI.

Horizon Power's $180,000 initiative will assist local businesses in business planning and campaigning. The initiative will ensure small regional companies receive the expertise and support they need to adapt to the 'new normal'.

Energy Minister, Bill Johnson, said that this initiative would be beneficial for regional businesses.

"Hundreds of regional Western Australian small businesses will benefit from Horizon Power's Vibrant Regional Businesses initiative," said Minister Johnson,

"Regional WA businesses are at the heart of every community, and this new initiative is just one of the ways the McGowan Labor Government is supporting the revitalisation and recovery post-COVID-19". 

Small businesses will have the opportunity to benefit from a range of practical and essential business recovery services, including business mentoring and planning, digital innovation, buy‑local campaigns and networking opportunities.

Between $10,000 and $30,000 will be administered by each of the eight regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry groups, commencing this month.
