Fairfield City Council is proud to be a major sponsor of the Local Business Awards.
Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said the awards night - and everything associated with it - was the ideal way to promote and celebrate great local businesses and their hardworking staff.
He said local businesses employed more than 15,000 people throughout the city.
"We are proud to support and encourage people to start their own businesses and employ local people," Councillor Carbone said.
"And we are pleased to congratulate them for their success.
This advertising feature is sponsored by:
"Throughout the year, we run business assistance programs and numerous workshops.
"Last year we opened The Workary at Whitlam Library Cabramatta to provide local businesses and business people with resources and learning opportunities to help them grow and thrive.
"Council also regularly invests in infrastructure upgrades in our town centres to improve their amenity and accessibility to attract new businesses and customers."
Councillor Carbone said the council had been a sponsor of the awards for 28 years and recognised that they enabled the city's local businesses and their staff to celebrate their achievements and hard work. "It also recognises the contribution local businesses make to the local economy and the jobs they provide for our community," he said.
"Fairfield City Council would like to wish all the finalists the very best of luck for the awards."
