Successful projects in Gilmore’s Eurobodalla region announced under the Regional Jobs and Investment Packages
The $220 million initiative is designed to stimulate job creation and investment in regional Australia
Seven projects will be delivered across the Eurobodalla creating more jobs
Local businesses in Gilmore’s Eurobodalla are set for another economic boost, with the Coalition Government’s Regional Jobs and Investment Package (RJIP) expected to create more jobs in the region. Federal Member for Gilmore Ann Sudmalis said overall more than 60 applications were received for the pilot program, highlighting the importance of this initiative to local communities in supporting business and strengthening the economy. “Over $4 million in Federal funding has been allocated to the Eurobodalla, delivering more jobs and strengthening the local business and tourism industry,” she said. “Thanks to almost $760,000 through the package, Off Road Camping Accessories will be able to develop cost competitive light weight entry level compact campers using new types of composite panels for rapid assembly. “Others include the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens (ERBG) Visitor Centre Redevelopment, Sea Breeze Aviation's expansion to better service larger and more complex aircraft, and Property Works development of an online training platform, software and support network. “The South Coast is a major tourism draw card, with immense opportunities. The Coalition is backing the New South Wales South Coast to confidently continue to grow and prosper." The Regional Jobs Investment Package initiative is part of the Coalition Government’s commitment to drive economic growth and job creation in Australia’s regions – backing local businesses, their workers and their families. The Coalition delivered 42,000 new jobs in regional New South Wales last year, benefits that flow from greater employment opportunities.
