It’s time focus on the positives

Enough has been said and written about the value of the Aussie dollar.

Everyone is aware it has fallen faster than the West Coast Eagles on the AFL ladder this year.

Has there been too much exposure about the negative implications of a weak currency?

Perhaps the country should investigate and exploit the opportunities presented by a low-value dollar rather than ponder the reasons it has happened and what can be done to resurrect it.

The obvious benefit of a weak currency is the opportunities it presents for exporters.

With WA providing slightly more than 25 per cent of Australia’s exports, the scenario is obvious – get out there and make the most of the situation.

Increased exports and reduced imports (which will become more expensive as the dollar decreases in value) should help Australia to reduce its national debt.

It’s time to turn a negative into a positive.

The low value of the dollar, the ramifications of the GST, rising interest rates – the negativity of these issues can be infectious.

It’s time to shrug this off to ensure this country prospers.
