The Queensland Government recognises the importance of streamlining regulation to make it easier to do business. To do this, the Queensland Small Business Commissioner will work with the Office of Productivity and Red Tape Reduction.
The Commissioner previously chaired the Taskforce, a sub-committee of the Queensland Small Business Advisory Council. The former Taskforce provided advice to government on improving regulation to support small business, to create a strong, profitable, and globally competitive business environment.
