Business SA recently conducted a detailed survey of members and the broader business community to assess the true impact on business resulting from the July 2021 lockdown and the wider economic loss, estimated between $316m to $446m (including $67m to $83m across the regions alone).
Business confidence has seen its first dip in 12 months amidst interstate COVID risks, material shortages and lack of skilled labour in South Australia. The Business SA – William Buck Quarterly Survey of Expectations for the June quarter has confirmed a 104.5 confidence index, falling 9.5 points from a 2 year high in the March quarter 2021.
The survey results showed that business conditions have continued to climb despite restrictions, closed international borders and a lack of skilled workers.
Today, Business SA, South Australia’s independent Chamber of Commerce and Industry, raised concerns that the imminent end of JobKeeper must be the catalyst to reduce restrictions, or it will risk causing further job losses.
Business SA is calling on the South Australian Transition Committee to make an immediate adjustment to current restrictions to allow for at least a 75% capacity for all constrained businesses, including gyms, personal care, recreation centres, health services, retail and entertainment venues, or enable an equivalent 1 person per 1.5 square metre rule.
It is great to see that business confidence in South Australia continues to build despite ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19. With vaccinations now underway, we hope that uncertainty will soon ease further.
