The Southland Chamber of Commerce is holding a "meet the candidates" evening so Invercargill City Council hopefuls can be quizzed on what they intend to do for business in the city.

Chamber chief executive Richard Hay said the Invercargill mayoral and councillor hopefuls would be asked the question: "If you are elected [at the October local body elections] what will you do to improve and support the business environment?"

Mr Hay said a community's health started with business success creating jobs. Councils could hinder or support that through their policies and actions so it was important to know where the candidates stood.

Fourteen city council candidates have agreed to give a three-minute presentation and answer questions from the floor.

The chamber is hosting the event at 173 Spey St on September 19, at 5.30pm. Attendance was capped at 60 people so registrations were essential, Mr Hay said.
