South Australian businesses to benefit from $9.5 billion in infrastructure projects

15 August 2017

SA Government: More South Australian businesses are set to benefit from the State Government’s record investment in infrastructure with a briefing for industry on infrastructure projects tomorrow.

The session will promote opportunities available as a result of the Government’s $9.5 billion infrastructure investment over the next four years, supporting an estimated 5700 jobs per year.

The information session will provide important details about upcoming infrastructure projects across our state including:

State Government policy mandates that at least a 90% of the value of major infrastructure projects goes to South Australian contractors.

The same policies also ensure at least 90% of labour hours are undertaken by South Australians, with at least 20% for people who face barriers to employment, the long term unemployed and Aboriginal people.

There is no requirement to register for the industry briefing, which will be held tomorrow at the InterContinental Hotel from 1pm. Doors open at 12.30pm.
