Since the lockdown was announced yesterday, we’ve met and attended briefings with the Premier, Treasurer, Chief Health Officer and the Minister for Small Business Di Farmer to make sure they’re aware of the impact this lockdown is having on Queensland businesses and the need for a dedicated recovery package.

We’re also keeping the local Chambers of Commerce across Queensland informed with relevant developments to help businesses receive timely information. Connect with your local Chamber to ensure your business voice is heard.

We’re working to ensure those businesses disrupted and forced to close in the state’s third lockdown this year, and future lockdowns, have access to payments of up to $25,000 to cover loss of stock and trade and support the reinstatement of business operations.

A CCIQ survey of Queensland businesses in the past 24 hours is showing 96% support the need for a COVID-19 Hotspot Recovery package to recover from this lockdown.
