Submission to the Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition
26 July 2018
The Business Council and its members are committed to the empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (in this report referred to as Indigenous Australians) and the creation of opportunities for full participation in the Australian economy and accordingly supports meaningful constitutional recognition of a Voice to the Parliament for Indigenous Australians.
Without recognition of Australia’s First Peoples, the Australian Constitution cannot be complete.
The view of the Business Council is that the Uluru Statement from the Heart outlines the desire of the Indigenous community in regards to constitutional recognition.
