Building for Recovery: NECA commends ACT jobs and economic recovery plan

28 Aug 2020

The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) welcomed the employment plan unveiled by the ACT government, saying it would “build for recovery”.

NECA ACT said the State’s Jobs and Economic Recovery Plan recognised the non-government sector is a crucial driver in rebuilding employment as the ACT begins to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, and that members welcomed the initiative to drive growth in new jobs and to get the local economy moving.

The ACT Government’s Chief Minister Andrew Barr has committed to invest in business partnerships to create 20,000 new jobs and drive total employment in the ACT above 250,000.

The ACT Government’s proposals to drive major infrastructure projects at the Canberra Hospital, three new tertiary education campuses, and a raft of projects based on schools and transport links will create opportunities for businesses in the electrical and commuinications contracting sector, safeguard existing jobs, and provide opportunities for apprentices and young people looking to join the industry.
