Stronger links for Aboriginal businesses

CCIWA has now assumed responsibility for the management of the Aboriginal Business Directory WA from the Small Business Development Corporation.

The directory is a listing of Aboriginal businesses in WA and allows businesses to promote their products and services to potential buyers, including government and private organisations.

The directory complements the CCI-run Industry Capability Network which connects suppliers to major government and private sector infrastructure, industrial, energy and resources projects and ProjectConnect, which focuses on WA state and regional projects.

Projects currently listed on ICN include Chevron’s Gorgon Project – one of the largest natural gas projects in the world – and BHP’s South Flank Iron Ore project.

Grants

Funding opportunities for regional Aboriginal small and medium businesses were announced by the State Government last week.

These include:

  • Regional Aboriginal small and medium businesses invited to apply for funding through new Local Capability Fund (LCF) round.
  • Up to $20,000 available for eligible businesses seeking to be involved in public and private sector markets.

Details of the grants can be found here.

ICN Principal Supply Chain Consultant Linus O’Brien can give you more information on ICN, ABDWA and ProjectConnect. Call (08) 9365 7556 or email [email protected]
