The Morrison Liberal Government's investment in a stronger economy is delivering record jobs growth and a low unemployment rate which is 3.3 per cent as at June 2018 for the Corangamite electorate. Over the past five years, almost 1.2 million new jobs have been created with the strongest growth in youth jobs in our recorded history.
Locally, we have delivered many important job creation programs including in manufacturing, tourism and high-tech start ups which have helped transform our economy since the dark days of Federal Labor. These include:
- $20 million Regional Jobs and Investment Package;
- Advanced Manufacturing Growth Fund;
- Geelong Region Innovation and Investment Fund; and
- Next Generation Manufacturing Investment Program.
We are also delivering major infrastructure projects which are creating hundreds of new jobs - these include the duplication of the Princes Highway, the upgrade of the Great Ocean Road and the construction of the National Disability Insurance Agency headquarters. Our $154 million City Deal will also deliver a major boost to local jobs.
