Adelaide summit to create jobs

07 August 2015 by News Desk

Jobs02State councilors from across South Australia met in Adelaide today to discuss ways to boost the economy and create more jobs.

State councils are aiming to devise a plan of action that will bring forward major infrastructure projects, support S.A. companies and promote regional tourism. Representatives from 36 councils gathered at Adelaide Town Hall to discuss ways in which local government can boost the state economy.

Speaking at the ‘Summit on Jobs Growth’, Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin Haese said: “South Australia’s councils have a workforce of around 9000 fulltime staff and a combined budget of over $2 billion.

Mr Haese said he wanted at least six achievable ideas to come from the summit. Plans include bringing forward capital projects and engaging the private sector and promoting regional tourism packages across the state.

“Local Government can’t wave a wand to solve the issue but we can work together to find ways we can assist business to stimulate growth and create jobs,” said Dave Burgess, president of the Local Government Association.
