The Motor Trade Association of WA (MTA) raised concerns over the cost impost on business arising from the WA State Budget announced on Thursday 14 May 2015.
The Federal Government's decision to allow the individual importation of new motor vehicles has left the Australian Automotive Industry in dismay, perpetuated ad hoc and piecemeal policy, and potentially left consumers exposed to unnecessary risk, little protection and no benefit.
The State’s peak Motor Industry Group the MTA WA has urged caution with a number of the Harper Review recommendations. Association CEO Stephen Moir said that while the recommendations appeared to make sense, the devil is in the detail.
The recent fight over WA Spud King Tony Galati’s growing and selling potatoes and the State Government’s reaction shines the light on the huge disparity in approach to protect small business.
As the voice of the WA motor industry the MTA WA is a reliable source of information on the issues and concerns of motor trade business in the State.
