Where's the business community's voice?

This seems to have been branded a farmers issue when in reality it's a regional development dilemma. It worries me that I only really see farmers and those from smaller rural hamlets protesting, not the regional business community - I'm yet to see VECCI or Australian Industry Group comment. The connection between water availability, the farmer and his crop to the local jobs available at processors like Uncle Tobys, Unilever, Nestle, Riverlea and Mars ought to be reinforced.
