Minister's business brekkie in Young

The Minister for Regional Development, Minister for Skills and Minister for Small Business, John Barilaro, sat down with some local business owners in the Western NSW town of Young for breakfast and a chat.

The Minister was in town for the milestone sod-turning ceremony at the Young Campus of TAFE NSW's Riverina Institute. He decided to make the most of his visit to meet with local business owners so that they could "quiz the government and raise any concerns they had".

The breakfast was organised by Young Shire Council, local business representatives and Wilders Bakery, who provided some of the delicious viands.

One of the major discussions at the breakfast was around IT and the importance of businesses having a strong digital presence.

"We're keen on introducing specialist advisors around IT which will take place later this year," Minister Barilaro told the breakfast attendees.
