World Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Day (MSME Day), held on Thursday 27 June 2024 is an important opportunity to celebrate the enterprising women and men who are the lifeblood of our communities.

Their enterprising spirits are so vital for Australia’s economy and our future prosperity.

Everyone knows small businesses are doing it tough. Small businesses employ 5.36 million people — 42% of private sector jobs and generate 33% of GDP. In 2006, small businesses employed 53% of private sector jobs and contributed 41% of GDP.

We need to ensure small business is an attractive option for people and create a supportive ecosystem to give enterprising people the best chance to be successful.
