With a long Covid-19 recovery ahead, migrant-run small businesses can lead the way. Australia has long considered small businesses to be its backbone – not only of the economy, but of the people who drive it. Every Australian has a story about a local business that matters to them, whether it’s the corner store with the best hot chips, the cafe owner who knows them by name or the local bank branch that sponsors their child’s fundraiser. Small businesses contributed almost $418bn in 2018-19 (which equates to 32% of the total economy) and employed 41% of the business workforce, driving connections, new jobs and community spirit. As we look to our future beyond Covid-19, they will continue to play a significant role. This time in our recovery. What do you think LiveTribers, are Australia’s migrant small businesses the key to our Economic and Social Recovery?
