Chamber slams Labor promises: football instead of stimulating business

Labor's election promises for Central Australia lack incentives for economic development in remote towns, give no thought to stimulating private enterprise in those areas, and by failing to allocate sufficient money to Alice Springs itself, fall short in returning the town to the tourist destination is used to be.

This is the view of Kay Eade, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce in Alice Springs, pictured at the Greatorex election forum she moderated, with (from left) ALP candidate Rowan Foley and Independent Phil Walcott.

She says money promised for football fields in bush communities would be better spent on stimulating business: "Why do electricians drive in and out from Alice Springs to service these communities?" she says. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
