The Strong Australia Network is made up of people who all want a stronger and better Australia. The Network was created by the Business Council of Australia to better engage with regional communities, and work on solutions to some of the challenges faced by our regions.
It’s essential that we go out and listen to what’s really important to these communities…to tell our story, the story of business, about what we represent and what we can create together.
Regional centres are crying out for investment, development and infrastructure, job creation, new businesses, reduced cost of living expenses, and improved access to educational opportunities to lift their living standards and strengthen their communities.
President, Business Council of Australia and former CEO, MYOB
There is no reason we can’t conduct a business like this in a regional town like Toowoomba as you could in the outskirts of a major city.

We decided to form a strong relationship with a major retail partner, Coles, here in Australia and we decided to start our own export company, we took control of our own supply chain.

Are we innovating? You bet we are, because that’s the lifeblood of our business.

Our relationship with Woolworths gives us the confidence that when we make the investment to grow fish, in two years’ time, when those fish are ready, there’ll be a market ready and waiting.
CEO, Humpty Doo Barramundi
Over the last 12 months, the workload from Easternwell (for the Shell QGC project) on top of our normal workload, we’ve increased from 12 to 18, which is a big, big jump for us and it’s ongoing.
Director, Oztec Manufacturing
