FWPA Annual Report released
Wednesday 18 Nov 2020
The past twelve months have brought challenges nobody could have predicted. During the summer, Australia was ravaged by some of the worst bushfires our nation has ever seen; a crisis followed almost immediately by the global COVID-19 pandemic.
FWPA would like to acknowledge the devastation caused by the bushfires of late 2019 and early 2020. Everyone at our organisation is deeply saddened by the loss of lives and homes.
“We acknowledge the impacts of damaged assets on members and levy payers, and the significant effect this is likely to have on businesses for some years to come. FWPA is with you on the journey towards recovery, and we will continue to take proactive steps to strengthen and support this process.”
“We also keep in our thoughts all those who have been directly impacted by COVID-19. Alongside the devastating loss of life and severe health impacts, we join other industries in bracing ourselves for an inevitable drop in demand, as a result of the far-reaching impact of the pandemic on the global economy.”
While the actual impact is still entirely uncertain, FWPA would like to reassure industry that we are thinking ahead, and remain committed to developing measures that will best support the sector through whatever lays ahead. While these real-world issues have affected our industry in a plethora of ways, FWPA has embraced the opportunities to adapt our approach and respond in a way that will continue to provide benefits to as many stakeholders as possible.
