Posted February 01, 2018 08:24:06I’m excited to share with you that I’ve just released my 2017-18 National Development Plan.
I’ve written it for the first time since I was the CEO of the company in February 2017.
It’s been a long journey but I’m confident that I have a good vision for how I want to support our local workforce, local economies and the environment.
The National Development plan has been a significant undertaking for us.
The first draft of it was published in July 2016 and was developed as part of the Government’s National Development Strategy for the next five years.
The plan is based on the principle of “business as usual”, meaning it’s a plan that would see a large amount of infrastructure built, such as schools, hospitals, housing, roads and rail infrastructure, but also for regional development.
I believe that the National Development strategy should be a catalyst for a national plan for the future.
I believe that a National Development program is the best way of creating a new generation of leaders for our economy.
This plan has the potential to change how we do business in Australia.
It’s based on five key principles:1.
The economy is a shared responsibility.
The community needs to be a partner in our national development strategy.2.
We must be accountable to the people who live and work in our communities.3.
We need to be investing in our local economy.4.
We have a shared future.5.
It is our responsibility to invest in the future of the people of our country.
The five principles I’ve outlined here are all important.
The plan is focused on three core elements:1) the economy is shared responsibility;2) we must be responsible to the communities we serve;3) we have a vision for the economy and it must be shared by the Government and the community.
I’m not talking about a national program for local development.
I’m talking about an economic strategy for Australia.
What I’m saying is that we must build a national economic plan to invest and create jobs in the economy.
This economic plan is what’s going to create jobs and grow our economy, not a national policy that’s been set in stone.
We are at a critical juncture in our economic future.
The world is going to change dramatically in the next decade.
We are living longer than ever before, and it’s going get worse.
We’re facing the most difficult economic challenges of our time.
If you’re working in an industry that’s growing at an extraordinary rate, it’s hard to know what you can and can’t do.
But if you’re an employee in a big business and you can’t plan for that change, you’re at risk.
It will mean losing your job.
The National Economic Strategy (NEST) will be a national blueprint that lays out the key objectives of the National Economic Development Strategy and the Government will be developing the plan as part the Government-wide investment plan.
I’ll be in Canberra on Wednesday for the announcement of the national development program.
Here’s what you need to know about the national plan:1 – The National Development Program is a framework for national economic development.2 – The plan sets out how we will work with the private sector, community groups and other stakeholders to create the conditions for our communities to prosper.3 – The policy is based around the principles of business as usual, meaning that the Government has an economic plan that is consistent with the needs of our economy and the people we serve.4 – The NEST strategy is a plan for growth and jobs.5 – The national plan will build a future for Australia that’s more secure, prosperous and connected.
We want to thank the people and organisations who have been working on this plan for years.
