Getting on board with Big Ideas

A VISIT to Murwillumbah by the New South Wales Chamber of Commerce's 10 Big Ideas campaign bus will help the public understand what needs to be done for the Tweed, says Murwillumbah Business Chamber president Toni Zuschke.

“It's about getting the information out to the general public, not just business,” Mrs Zuschke said.

The business chamber has played a role with other North Coast business groups in listing ideas that are important to growing the regional economy.

The Chamber of Commerce hopes the ideas will be picked up in the state election campaign and acted upon by the next New South Wales Government.

Mrs Zuschke said among ideas was the need to counter cross-border issues, particularly lower taxation of business in Queensland, preferably by a zoned and staged introduction of New South Wales taxes.

New South Wales Business Chamber spokesman John Murray says the campaign bus would stop in Murwillumbah, opposite the police station at 10am on Monday.

The bus would be accompanied by the state's Business Chamber CEO Stephen Cartwright and the public was being asked to “come down to show your support and help us get a better deal for business in New South Wales”.

“The public needs to be involved because the ten big ideas affect the whole economy,” said Mrs Zuschke. “The big one for me was the cross-border issues.”
