Swan Grants Program, Round 3, 2004
This report is the result of a Swan Grant to review the current status of business and business activity in the Malaga Business District and to map any changes that have occurred since the original Malaga Business Audit was conducted in 2001. This project was undertaken in two parts. The first part was a replication of the 2001 Malaga business survey so that the City could review trends and analyse if any of the implemented recommendations based on the 2001 results had any discernable effect. The results of the current survey were also used to inform the second part of the project, which was to develop some targeted business growth workshops that were specific to the needs of Malaga businesses. The aim of the workshops was to support and assist local businesses to develop growth strategies, local networks and connect together using external support agencies and resources. Only the results of the 2004 survey are reported here...
