Large corporations and companies looking to take advantage of a better quality of life will be able to benefit from expert advice about setting up shop in regional NSW thanks to the NSW Nationals in the state government.
NSW Nationals Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders has thrown his support behind a new concierge service to help companies develop business plans and provide practical advice about establishing jobs, offices and headquarters in regional towns and cities.
“This is fantastic news for our people because we know that when big businesses look to relocate to the regions, there will be more jobs for locals as well as more money in the tills of our local restaurants and shops,” Mr Saunders said.
“The NSW Nationals in the state government are building a safer and stronger regional NSW, turning country towns into thriving hubs. We want people to relocate to our towns, but most importantly we are giving the people who already live here access to the best possible services.
“We are creating jobs, building the best hospitals, fixing roads and providing education service that is as good, if not better than what they get in the city.”
Deputy Premier John Barilaro said the NSW Nationals in the state government had led the way, announcing public sector jobs will be advertised statewide with ‘regional location encouraged’, and now he is calling on big business to follow suit.
“One of the principles of good business is ‘location, location, location’, but in the COVID world the secret to success is relocation, relocation, relocation, to regional NSW,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Last week the NSW Nationals in the state government launched the 20-Year Economic Vision for Regional NSW, part of which states that public sector jobs will now be advertised in every corner of the state and I am calling on corporates to share in the benefits by establishing themselves in rural towns.
“The new Department of Regional NSW concierge service will provide companies considering relocating with the benefit of expert local advice, recommend ideally-suited towns, identify available office space and support the development of business plans that capitalise on the advantages of setting up in the bush.”
