A significant opportunity

WELCOME to ‘Aboriginal Business’, a special feature for Business News aimed at increasing the level of understanding between the Aboriginal and business communities of WA.

The information contained on these pages will provide the opportunity to link with the Aboriginal community in the areas of private enterprise, as well as outlining government efforts to foster indigenous business.

The theme ‘participation in the economy’ is quite global and denotes that any participation, from training to stand-alone corporations, is a legitimate form of Aboriginal economic development. The idea of private Aboriginal enterprise is quite new and has been encouraged actively only in the past 20 to 25 years, especially the past decade.

The Mabo decision of 1992 changed forever the perception that Aboriginal people were marginalised in Australian society and, while the problems of past policies will continue to reverberate through the current and future generations, there are encouraging signs that the indigenous world is changing for the better.

‘Aboriginal Business’ is one way of tracking some of the change and looking towards a better future for the First Nations of Australia.
