Mr Barilaro is encouraging small businesses throughout NSW to take better advantage of internet and mobile technologies.

“Small businesses, particularly those in regional areas, can find new opportunities to start up, scale up and innovate if they make the digital economy work for them,” Mr Barilaro said.

“Our focus is on delivering the support services to make NSW the easiest state to do business in.”
