Jobs growth in south west

Mr  PURCELL  (Western Victoria) (10:04:48) — I am delighted to rise today to celebrate a huge increase in jobs in the Warrnambool region over the past five years. According to employment data, jobs in the Warrnambool region increased by over 3300; that is a 25 per cent increase. As an advocate of local jobs this gives me great pleasure. As much of my term is covered by this, this adds to the importance of it.

Projects such as the Salt Creek wind farm, the new Moyne Health Services plus upgrades to the Warrnambool Base Hospital promise more healthcare and construction jobs. Strong business confidence and agricultural strength are proving a boon for retailers, along with low unemployment rates. Local leaders say there are plenty of opportunities for skilled workers in the region, and I would back them up. With construction and the ability to attract and retain industry in our region, many of the energy, agricultural and infrastructure projects will lead to even more opportunity in the beautiful south-west.
