$33 Billion Plan To Create 21st Century Jobs And A Skilled Economy

Premier Denis Napthine today outlined Victorian Jobs in the 21st Century, a $33 billion initiative to create 200,000 jobs and provide training for nearly one million Victorians.

Dr Napthine said the Victorian Jobs in the 21st Century plan would use the Coalition Government’s record investment in large-scale infrastructure projects as a springboard to create a diverse, highly skilled and productive workforce that will underpin a strong economy for decades to come.

“This is a clear 6-point plan that builds on Victoria’s strengths and capitalises on the opportunities presented through the Asian Century by focusing on skills, manufacturing, infrastructure, services, the digital economy and international engagement,” Dr Napthine said.

“Over the last three and a half years our Government has built a strong foundation for Victoria’s future. We are the only state with a Triple A stable credit rating with budget surpluses over all the forward estimates.

“There are now 100,000 more people employed than when we came to office and since 2010 we have also enabled 800,000 people to enrol in 1.8 million courses.

“On top of this, we have invested in the largest public infrastructure program seen in Australia in more than 70 years.

“Our Victorian Jobs in the 21st Century plan builds on this foundation to take the state forward and deliver a prosperous Victoria with jobs, opportunities and training for all members of our community,” Dr Napthine said.
