City of Moreton Bay businesses are invited to share their insights and opinions via Business Chamber Queensland’s Pulse Survey.

City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery encouraged local businesses to contribute to the quarterly pulse survey. 

“We are working with Business Chamber Queensland to ensure Moreton Bay businesses are represented at a state level, and local business needs are at the forefront of government policy decision-making.

“To understand the issues local businesses are facing, we need to hear from you; this is your chance to share the voice of your business. 

“City of Moreton Bay is a convergence of innovation and industry, diverse markets and an enviable lifestyle, all in an unparalleled location,” Mayor Flannery said.

Business Chamber Queensland’s Pulse Survey has been running in Queensland for more than 20 years and is considered the state’s most established, comprehensive, and trusted business sentiment survey.  

Pulse Survey data for the March quarter showed Moreton Bay businesses reported steady general business conditions while sales and revenue and employment levels were satisfactory. However high operating costs were undermining profitability, while confidence in the future of the state and national economies was weak.

The survey also identified that Moreton Bay businesses are predominantly focused on the level of demand for their goods and services, interest rates, and the rising costs of insurance premiums as their top concerns.

The pulse survey measures employment levels, turnover, business profitability, and confidence. This knowledge adds a great degree of confidence to the strategic planning and future investment decisions of Queensland businesses.  

Business Chamber Queensland’s Pulse Survey for the September 2023 quarter is now open.
