Gunnedah Chamber of Commerce representatives came away with no "new information or announcements" at the recent drought-affected businesses breakfast.
Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope and NSW Small Business Commissioner Robyn Hobbs answered Gunnedah's small business owners' questions at the event.
But Chamber president Stacey McAllan told the NVI the chamber was not satisfied with the support and assistance the state government representatives offered.
"The questions were answered, however, there was not any new information or announcements provided that we weren't already aware of including the availability of grant/funding/assistance in the form of Service NSW and Business Connect," Ms McAllan said.
When asked if chamber representatives thought the state government had done enough for small businesses in the shire, Ms McAllan responded "not in the form of immediate relief and assistance".
"The grants/funding/assistance that we do have available is time consuming and difficult to access," she said.
"Small businesses owners are time poor and just don't have the capacity to spend hours upon hours cutting through the red tape in the hope to qualify for any assistance."
She said while the chamber appreciated the visit from the minister and commissioner, it hoped "they collaborate with existing local organisations to find a suitable result" for support.
"It is hoped that they take away not only that we are "resilient" and that we "battle on" but that we do need immediate relief," the chamber president said.
"We look forward to seeing what the minister and the small business commissioners findings are from their visit to our regional towns."
