Local Arabic businesses will be able to access a suite of support and assistance offered by Bankstown City Council’s Bankstown Business Advisory Service (BBAS) as part of a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Australian Arabic Business Council (AABC).

The MOU, signed at a special dinner on (Wednesday 13 May), will see BBAS and the AABC work closely on business initiatives and develop new opportunities for its members.

Mayor of Bankstown, Linda Downey, said the new partnership helps strengthen already close ties between Council and local Arabic businesses.

“Our award-winning BBAS has been recognised for its excellence and commitment to helping our local business community including many Arabic businesses that are already BBAS members,” said Mayor Downey.

“Under this new MOU, members of the AABC will be able to participate in BBAS networking and industry events, learn more about the services that are available to them, and participate in a number of workshops that benefit their businesses.”

“Council has already established similar partnerships with community organisations and businesses such as the University of Western Sydney, TAFE South Western Sydney Institute and the NSW Business Chamber, so we’re excited at the prospect of working closely with the AABC.”

AABC President, Hassan Moussa, also welcomed the new partnership and said it will benefit many of its members, particularly those looking to expand their own operations.

“We share a similar vision to the one adopted by Bankstown City Council for a successful, vibrant and resilient local business community, achieving this vision through consulting, cooperating and collaborating with key stakeholders,” said Mr Moussa.

“With significant opportunities ahead for local Australian Arabic businesses, the AABC is pleased to be able to offer our members the appropriate support they need to take advantage of these opportunities and take their businesses to the next level through the assistance of Council.”

Council’s BBAS is a one stop shop for residents and local businesses looking for support, advice and assistance on owning, operating and growing a business.
