I popped down to Chinatown for a Small Business Marathon with the President of the Australian DongGuan Chamber of Commerce Justin Chan. I always enjoy spending time with the wide variety of businesses that operate in this district.
Small Business is the lifeblood of the economy and the businesses around Chinatown are especially resilient. It has been a tough couple of years for many of them with the Light Rail construction and disruption on George Street as well as various other road works on their doorsteps.
It is important that the City of Sydney considers the impacts of these developments on small businesses so that they can remain viable as our city grows.
