Calls to enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses ahead of the 2019 Federal Budget

1st Apr 2019

Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people are participating in business or are self employed at record levels. Latest research shows that there has been a 30 per cent increase in participation in the Indigenous business sector.

Despite this, have been calls to allocate funds and educational measures in tomorrow's Federal Budget so that more Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander businesses can grow even further.

Associate Professor Michelle Evans from the University of Melbourne's Faculty of Business and Economics spoke to CAAMA's Philippe Perez.
