2018 SA State Business Survey

The 5th annual BDO State Business Survey has now closed, and the results are in!

Thank you to those who took the time to tell us about the day to day experiences of doing business in South Australia – the opportunities, challenges and ideas we can all learn from.

This year’s respondents have shown a remarkable surge in optimism regarding the state of the economy.

While finding the right staff, with the right skills, is proving more and more difficult, business remains confident of increasing employment numbers, turnover and profits over the coming year – which is great news for the state as a whole.

Some of the key findings from the 2018 survey can be seen below, and you can read the full report here:

Our thanks to Premier Hon. Steven Marshall MP, our panel facilitator Donny Walford and distinguished panel members Leader of the Opposition Peter Malinauskas, David Fechner, Prof. Jana Matthews, Richard Turner and Jim Whalley for helping us to launch the results.

We were privileged to have the expertise and insights of these leaders of South Australian business and politics available to attendees. It was a wonderful night discussing and celebrating the business owners and operators who help make South Australia a great place to live and work.
