Remember franchise needs, FCA appeals to political power brokers

As political negotiations for the Government continue, the Franchise Council of Australia is calling for Greens and Independents to remember small business, and the franchise sector in particular.

Franchising needs stability, national laws and policies that will stimulate investment and growth, said executive director Steve Wright.

“We need stability — we have just had a long review of franchising rules and the Government implemented what it called sweeping reform on 1 July. We donÕt need the regulatory debate reopened. And we certainly do not want different rules applying in different States, as is currently being proposed by Labor in South Australia.”
