Kevin RuddOn Thursday 8 November 2012, The Woolloongabba Business Association hosted an evening with Kevin Rudd federal member for the electorate of Griffith.

The evening was made more intimate as the number of members attending was less than expected. Kevin move amongst the members talking to each personally. After a suitably short introduction by the President Glendon Young (Kevin does not need much introduction) he spoke of the initiatives by the government to help small business after which he fielded questions from the audience.

He spoke on Federal State co –operation, the effect of the high Australian dollar, the move in Asia to bench mark against the Chinese RMB instead of the US dollar, the position with funding for the cross river tunnel and sundry other topics.

The Association provided drinks and nibbles catered by the Chalk Hotel.
