Sensis survey shows confidence up but Queensland government approval rate low

Felicity Caldwell reports in the Brisbane Times (18.1.17) on details of a new Sensis Business Index survey which shows business confidence in Queensland at a new high, but dropping levels of approval for the state government’s performance.

‘Queensland business confidence has jumped to its highest level in seven years, with business owners feeling positive about the year ahead.

‘But the survey was not all good news, with the Queensland government’s approval rating not budging, remaining on -18, the second lowest rating for any state or territory government.

‘That result, from the latest Sensis Business Index, was met with a mixed reaction from Labor and the LNP as the state heads into an election year.

‘The report shows Queensland small and medium business confidence rose four points to +43 this quarter, sitting at its highest level since March 2010, and rising for the third quarter in a row.’
