Doing business in 2023: What CCIQ’s latest Pulse Report findings tells us about the year ahead

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (CCIQ) latest Pulse report will be ready for release this February with the results to set the scene for business sentiment and conditions for the year ahead. Ongoing skilled labour shortages, rising wage and labour costs, alongside increasing fuel and energy prices, combined with macroeconomic impacts, weighed heavily on businesses during the last quarter with profitability and long-term economic confidence taking a hit.

At the same time, as one of the nation’s fastest growing cities with a thriving economy, and a decade of opportunities ahead with events like the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, there has not been a more exciting time in Brisbane to do business.

Backed by 20 years’ worth of data, CCIQ’s Pulse Survey is Queensland's most established, comprehensive, and trusted source of business sentiment and attitudes. The December quarter survey’s results will form the core of an interesting discussion.

Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) in partnership with Brisbane Business Hub invites you to the discussion "Doing business in 2023: What CCIQ's latest Pulse Report findings tell us about the year ahead"

Date: Thursday, 23 February 2023
Time: 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Venue: Brisbane Business Hub
Address: Level 2, 155 Queen St, Brisbane
