FORESTRY INDUSTRY

WHAT I BELIEVE

 

The forestry and timber industry has been an integral part of our Region for the past 100 years. It is an integral part for the region’s economic, social and employment sector. The industry employs almost 5% of the total employment sector. It has a direct value of almost $700 million. $180 million of the local gross regional product. 

 

MY ACTION PLAN

 

1. Balance is the key to any community or industry. My aim will be to support the industry whilst making sure our native flora and fauna are looked after.

2. I will be working with the industry to connect and insure local people are employed so they can put back into their local community.

3. It will be my aim to work with this industry to make it a long-term sustainable and profitable industry for our region.
