Enterprise Saint John Praises JDI Investment

Enterprise Saint John wants to ride the buzz of last week's $450 million dollar direct investment in the West side pulp and paper mill.

In a release, chair Bill Teed calls it the biggest announcement in the forestry sector in Canada in twenty years adding it's evidence of the kind of impact a local home team industry can have on the region.

Teed adds with the equivalent of 600 full time jobs, this investment will yield spinoff benefits to go way beyond forestry meaning everyone from metal fabricators to pizza shops stand to gain.

Enterprise Saint John is excited for young people in the region questioning their careers options.

Teeds says the JDI announcement is a good news story for young people looking for opportunities to stay home and for those looking who want to come back.
