THE CONSTRUCTION Industry Federation today called for a Government stimulus package which could create hundreds of jobs in Co Donegal and complete or start 19 projects across this county.
The organisation projects are included on a “list of previously announced projects which could be advanced if the Government secures an EU stimulus package.”
“Since the possibility of an EU stimulus package was first suggested, the CIF has been looking into what projects could be included, including 26 projects based in Kilkenny,” CIF director general Tom Parlon said today.
“The CIF hopes that by publishing this list of potential projects it will help sharpen Government thinking on the potential stimulus package. By seeing just how many projects could be impacted by this deal, we believe it could help further the resolve of the Government to advance negotiations with their European partners,” he said.
“There may be many more projects which could also be included in the deal and which would also provide jobs, investment and other benefits around the country. However, we hope this list will act as a strong flavour of what can be achieved if the stimulus package is finalised in the near future.”
