Business Hunter strives to make the Hunter a better place to live, work and do business.
We advocate for public and private investment that promotes the economic growth and diversification of the region and policies that support businesses to grow, prosper and create jobs.
We engage with decision makers and policy influencers at local, state and federal government levels to highlight the priorities and needs of business and industry in the Hunter. We are the go-to organisation for government leaders and journalists seeking feedback, analysis or comment on regional business issues.
Business Hunter works with the expert Policy and Advocacy team at Business NSW to amplify our voice and maximise our impact.
Business Hunter and Business NSW have been speaking up for business since the 1800s. Together, we are recognised as a trusted advisor and the leading voice on key issues affecting business.
We talk to our members, then we ensure their views are heard by politicians and policy makers.
We listen – we conduct surveys, speak to members and convene meetings, forums and roundtables.
We respond – we write submissions, reports and letters and meet face-to-face with political leaders and government agencies.
We campaign – we use news and social media to make the community, business owners and government aware of issues.
