Economic and demographic data specialists REMPLAN have initiated the Australian Business Economic Impact Survey (ABEIS) to respond to the rapid change experienced by businesses as a result of COVID-19 and the need for insights at a local geographic level.
The national economic landscape, state to state and region to region is diverse. This survey is specifically targeting insights around change in employment and economic impact at an industry scale.
While many people are dealing with the day-to-day pressures caused by the pandemic, it is also important to remember that the crisis will pass and that we need to plan for the future. To support a rapid recovery and demonstrate the impact for your businesses and your region, a strong quantifiable evidence base is critical.
While completing a survey may be low on the priority of businesses at this time, RDA Northern Rivers encourages all Northern Rivers businesses who have been impacted by the current crisis to participate. Insights from the survey and subsequent REMPLAN analysis will be provided to federal, state and local governments to enable a targeted response that addresses the impact to local businesses, local employment and in turn broader supply chain chains.
