The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre invites you to the launch of the BCEC Small Business Survey, which has the latest insights on how WA small businesses have fared during the COVID-19 crisis, which supports have helped the most and how small business owners view the future.

Small businesses have been referred to as the ‘engine room’ for growth; they are also the engine room for jobs. In WA, small businesses employ more than 500,000 workers and play a critical role in supplying and serving customers and larger businesses across the state’s cities and regions.

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the global economy has introduced an important new context to WA’s diversification and regional economic development strategies, and importantly, the role that small businesses can play as an engine of growth for the state’s economy.

This report seeks to understand the response of WA’s business community to the COVID-19 crisis, including adaption to trade, innovative approaches to doing business, as well as highlighting the cost, workforce and other pressures they may be experiencing.

Please join us for breakfast with prominent government, industry and community leaders to discuss this important topic.
