Survey to probe Border business confidence

Border businesses can have their say on the local operating environment by taking part in the ninth annual Albury Wodonga Business Survey open from today.

The survey provides an important insight into the local economy and the key issues affecting the business community.

Business owners are encouraged to spend five minutes sharing their views as part of the survey, so that the challenges and successes being experienced are better understood by both the private and public sector.

“On the back of considerable growth in Albury-Wodonga over the past few years, it’s more important than ever to understand the present and emerging opportunities that businesses can harness,” owner of intouch Finance Meiken Barnes said.

“The survey findings offer a rare local perspective that can’t normally be obtained from other public access data sources” she said.

A joint initiative of AlburyCity and Wodonga Council, the survey will be distributed to more than 3000 businesses listed on the Albury Wodonga Business Directory ( as well as the two councils’ business databases.

“We’ve successfully operated in Albury-Wodonga and the greater region for four years and it’s a dynamic and rewarding place to do business,” First National Real Estate owner William Bonnici said.

“We take part in the business survey each year as it presents a great opportunity to play a part in shaping the region’s future.”

“Our strategies always consider local market trends to ensure we remain relevant and adaptable, so it’s important that a good cross section of businesses participate for results to be viable and useful for stakeholders,” he said.

Businesses have until Friday, August 25, to complete the short online survey. Survey results will be kept strictly confidential with a key findings report expected to be available approximately Saturday, September 16, via, and the two council websites.
