Jobs and Skills Summit ground work by the Hon. Kristy McBain MP

This month the Jindabyne Chamber were invited to attend Eden-Monaro Business Forum to discuss the Jobs & Skills Summit |(5.30pm, Monday, 15 Aug 22) by Kristy McBain MP.


Dear Jindabyne Chamber,

I would like to make sure that the views and ideas of Eden-Monaro workers and employers, businesses and unions contribute to build a bigger, better-trained, and more productive workforce; boost incomes and living standards; and create more opportunities for more Australians to get ahead and to reach their aspirations.

The Jobs and Skills Summit will focus on:

  • keeping unemployment low, boosting productivity and incomes
  • delivering secure, well-paid jobs and strong, sustainable wages growth
  • expanding employment opportunities for all Australians including the most disadvantaged
  • addressing skills shortages and getting our skills mix right over the long term
  • improving migration settings to support higher productivity and wages
  • maximising jobs and opportunities from renewable energy, tackling climate change, the digital economy, the care economy, and a Future Made in Australia
  • ensuring women have equal opportunities and equal pay.

This Eden-Monaro Business Forum will be at 5.30pm on Monday, 15 August 2022.  I would very much like to hear from you so I can better represent Eden-Monaro views at the Summit.

Following the Summit an Employment White Paper will be produced recommending immediate actions and opportunities for medium and long-term reforms. Submissions concerning the White Paper will open later in 2022.




Dear Eden-Monaro Jobs and Skills Advisory Group

Thank you for your attendance at the Eden-Monaro Jobs and Skills Zoom sessions this week.  It was wonderful to meet with you all and hear your first-hand experiences and proposed solutions to the challenges you are facing in the regions.

I have compiled your input into a one-page submission which forms the Eden-Monaro perspective at the federal Jobs and Skills Summit in September.

If you would like to add to the submission, or if you have any feedback, please respond to this email before Thursday 25 August 2022. Eden-Monaro Electorate Submission DRAFT
