THURSDAY’S State Budget will set the trajectory for our economic recovery.
The Premier has said we will build our way out of this crisis, Tasmanians and the construction industry has marshalled behind him.
To support our industry and ensure we can play a leading role in the recovery, Master Builders submitted a detailed wish-list to government – ‘Rebuilding Tasmania’.
Several key priorities are already implemented, including HomeBuilder, bringing forward public tenders, implementing the New Major Projects Legislation, fast-tracking red tape reduction legislations, and working with major contractors and developers, through the Office of the Coordinator General, to bring major projects back into the pipeline.
We hope to see a continued commitment by government in Thursday’s Budget to our industry, so we can get on with building our way out of this crisis.
