Business restrictions are set to ease but Canterbury companies don't want government support to dry up yet.

Canterbury Chamber of Commerce Chief executive Leeann Watson says most of their members welcome the news of Tuesday's lowering of the level.
But she says while it allows more business activity it doesn't allow more social activity.

Watson says the region's hospitality and retail sectors are still in big trouble and the Government needs to consider ongoing financial support during this period.
