A Message from State Member for Mermaid, Ray Stevens - May 2018

Posted on 11 May 2018
Congratulations to all competitors and thank you to the hard working volunteers involved with the Commonwealth Games.  The much talked about traffic snarls and headaches, mooted loudly by Mr Beattie, fortunately did not occur, however the other side of the coin was the significant decrease in general holiday takings for our local businesses who had stocked up and hired extra staff to cater for the expected high demand.  Although most disappointing for local businesses it was...

Chamber says cheers to Federal Budget
The Federal Government's 2018-19 Federal Budget offers a mixed bag for Gold Coast businesses according to the Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce.

A Message from the President - 5 April 2018
After years of planning, the Commonwealth Games are finally here. The Gold Coast is truly in the centre of global attention for the next 10 days. And despite a few hiccups (I won't mention incorrect dates on tickets and blunders in the programs) and some indifferent weather, the Gold Coast is already shining. The Opening Ceremony last night was sensational and made me proud to call the Gold Coast home. The Chamber expects the impact of the Commonwealth Games for businesses acro...
