Equitable consideration. Ensuring that government legislative and regulatory frameworks take into account the interests of privately owned businesses and family-owned enterprises of many different sizes in Australia.

 

Policy leadership. Advocating policy positions that are likely to enhance the contribution of privately owned businesses and family-owned enterprises of many different sizes to the Australian economy.

Making these COSBOA policy statements public is intended to promote a greater understanding of COSBOA’s advocacy role and core areas of public policy interest.
