Province Will Focus On Six Sectors For Job Creation

Finance Minister Blaine Higgs firing back at the Opposition Liberals for saying the province is in a job-creation crisis.

Higgs tells CHSJ News details of the economic plan will be revealed in the coming weeks and it will discuss the six sectors that the province will focus on.

He says all of the economic indicators show a slow economy but there are some signs of change ahead.

He adds the government is not going to say that a certain number of jobs will be created because there are too many factors at play.
