Victorian Chamber mourns the passing of Hon. Simon Crean

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry < 1 mins read

It is with deep sadness that the Victorian Chamber of Commerce pays tribute to esteemed former politician, the Hon. Simon Crean. A highly respected figure in Australian politics, Mr Crean made significant contributions to the nation, leaving an indelible mark on the economic landscape of Victoria and the entire country.

As the Victorian Chamber of Commerce, we had the privilege of working closely with Mr Crean on many occasions, witnessing firsthand his passion for fostering innovation, driving global trade opportunities, and encouraging entrepreneurship.

He was instrumental in developing strategic partnerships and opening doors to new trade opportunities, enhancing Victoria's reputation as an international business hub.

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce extends its deepest condolences to Simon Crean's family and friends during this difficult time. His passing is a significant loss for the nation, and his contributions will be remembered for years to come.

To be attributed to Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive Paul Guerra:

“Simon was able to bridge between unions and business and was a strong advocate of trade. He provided strong council to me and will be very much missed by all those involved in business and trade in Australia.

“We will forever be grateful for his tireless efforts to advance Victoria's business interests and his lasting impact on the economic landscape. It’s a sad loss and our thoughts are with his family.”

Australia’s Nature Positive future hangs in the balance

Legislation tabled today to create a new Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and Environment Information Australia (EIA) needs significant amendment to provide an adequate framework for a nature positive Australia, according to Humane Society International (HSI) Australia. While the EPA and EIA are important and necessary institutions, the animal protection and conservation organisation argues the proposed scope and governance of these bodies won’t deliver the urgent and fundamental improvements in decision making that our extinction crisis demands. Nicola Beynon, Head of Campaigns, HSI Australia said: “The current Bills replicate the key problems of the existing legislation. They fail to embed clear,…
