“Our analysis identified that 30 per cent of WA businesses fail within three years,” CCIWA Chief Economist Aaron Morey said.
“We then estimated the failure rate for CCIWA members within three years, and found it was three per cent over the same corresponding period.
“What we found was that WA businesses are 39 per cent more likely to stay in business within three years if they are a CCIWA member.”
Morey said the analysis included Corporate, Essential, Advantage and Complete Members, who had resigned their Membership within three years for reasons related to going out of business such as closure, insolvency, or bankruptcy.
“We’ve always known that a CCIWA Membership can help businesses thrive, and now we have the data to prove it.”
