The Manitoba government announced a new plan Thursday that aims to create more jobs in the province.
The initiative aims to create 40,000 new private sector jobs in Manitoba over the next four years.
“We have to start working less at the traditional speed of government and more at the speed of business,” Pallister said.
“We are competing, whether we choose to admit it or not, we certainly are. We’re competing with other jurisdictions that want business.
“We want the business here in Manitoba, so we have to act like it. And that means we can’t have dozens and dozens of agencies within our tax funded structure competing with each other, we have to knock silos down and get people working with each other.”
The plan focuses on expanding existing Manitoba companies, attracting new investment to the province, expanding export markets, and fast-tracking the development of Manitoba’s skills, talent, and knowledge strategy.
The province is also encouraging residents to submit their feedback on the plan, which can be done in an online survey or in an online town hall.
