“The best way to quickly generate jobs is through construction as this has been proven over and over again every-time there has been an economic problem in the world.”
Minister for Infrastructure and Lands, Jone Usamate stated this while speaking during the 2020/2021 National Budget debate where he highlighted that government’s budget is focusing on construction which will generate jobs, grow consumption and stimulate the internal economy.
He says they are continuing their emphasis on agriculture and the micro, small and medium enterprises.
The Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources has been given $24.9 million.
Usamate says the Ministry will look to generate public-private partnerships to help them grow the kind of infrastructure expansion that is needed to stimulate the economy.
He says they will privatise the identification of land for improvement in infrastructure, construction of hospitals, health centres and medical centres, police posts and also for housing.
