Master Builders offer government construction properties

Master Builders Australia has offered their recommendations on what the next government should prioritise.

As the Australian federal election approaches many organisations and leading industry commentators are offering their recommendations as to what the next government should prioritise.

Master Builders Australia, which is the voice of the country's $100 billion building and construction industry, has released its suggestions for building and construction sector reform.

The organisation is calling on the next government, regardless of which party is elected, to take urgent and responsible steps to reduce structural budget deficits with clear economic strategy, giving investors and consumers greater confidence in the economy.

It recommends an increase in affordable housing options, better engagement with Australian businesses, improved opportunities for families to own homes and greater efforts being placed on balancing industrial relations systems and making them easier to understand.

Master Builders also seeks greater regulation in the building and construction industry through reinstating the powers of the Australian Building and Construction Commission.
