Statement on the Constitutional Amendment to provide for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice

CCIWA Chief Executive

Chris Rodwell

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA is deeply committed to Constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and broader reconciliation efforts.

Our reflection is that the Constitutional Amendment to provide for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice is fundamentally an issue for individual Australians to resolve through the upcoming referendum.

In the lead up to the referendum, CCIWA commits to providing information to business owners and the broader community to support them making an informed choice.

We also commit that all office bearers and employees of CCIWA can freely express their individual personal views on the Voice ahead of the referendum.
