Activities and Achievements | January - March 2017
The Australian Chamber's Activities & Achievements publication showcases the work we do on behalf of our members. This quarter the Australian Chamber was a major voice in national debate on a range of issues vital to business, including company tax, apprenticeships and penalty rates. We worked with members to respond to the Fair Work Commission’s changes to penalty rates, which will support small businesses to create work opportunities and meet the needs of customers, and are continuing to build public support in order to avert a parliamentary challenge.
We released our Pre-Budget Submission, outlining spending and revenue proposals that will allow the government to futureproof Australia against threats that may emerge.
