在馬恩島創造就業機會的經濟計劃獲得批准

一項在馬恩島再創造5000個工作崗位和增加企業發展機會的計劃已被Tynwald批准。

馬恩島經濟戰略文件的修訂版在周二進行了辯論,該文件是一個將國內生產總值提高到100億英鎊的長期計劃。

然而,在修訂後的戰略中,一項關於到2037年將人口增長到10萬的建議被降級了。

此前,在最近的一次諮詢中,人口增長在戰略初稿的四個關鍵主題中被列為最不重要。

人們對該島的基礎設施如何應對居民人數激增的16,000人表示關切。

因此,創造就業機會現在已被提升到計劃中最重要的位置。

坎南先生說,雖然增長的雄心仍然存在,但在公眾反饋表明 "在某些服務領域已經面臨壓力的情況下,很難想象人口的增長 "之後,它已經被 "重新聚焦 "了。

"他說:"因此,我們強調有必要打好基礎,為更多的人口改善我們的政府和島嶼服務。

他補充說,修訂後的計劃將使政府能夠 "確保我們擁有正確的基礎設施,滿足現在和未來的社會需求"。

A plan to create 5,000 more jobs and increase opportunities for businesses to grow on the Isle of Man has been approved by Tynwald.

A revised version of the Isle of Man Economic Strategy document, which is a long-term plan to raise GDP to £10bn, was debated on Tuesday.

However, a proposal to grow the population to 100,000 by 2037 was downgraded in the amended strategy.

It comes after population growth was ranked least important of the four key themes of the first draft of the strategy in a recent consultation.

Concerns had been raised over how the island's infrastructure would cope with a 16,000-strong spike in the number of residents.

As a result, job creation has now been elevated to the most important position in the plan.

Mr Cannan said, while the growth ambition remained, it had been "refocussed" after public feedback indicated it was "hard to conceive growing the population when some areas of service provision are already under strain".

"As a result we've emphasised the need for the groundwork to improve our government and island services for a larger population," he said.

The revised plan would allow the government to "make sure that we have the right infrastructure which meets the needs of society both now and into the future", he added.
