Steve Bercu, Bookseller, from Austin, Texas meets New Zealand Government Small Business Minister Hon Craig Foss at Parliament
Steve and the Minister engrossed themselves in discussion on the characteristics of small business in the United States and New Zealand, not forgetting the issue of sales tax/GST remaining uncollected from cross-border/ offshore online retailers, which hurts communities in both countries.
The Booksellers NZ Conference is on Saturday 2 July, and Sunday 3 July. With keynote speaker Steve Bercu from Austin, Texas; and other events including Exisle Press' Maggie Eyre, and author Graeme Simison, this is going to be a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and meet others in the trade.
