Politicians will 'need to get out of the way' to allow the economy to recover

Sky News Darwin Bureau Chief Matt Cunningham says the pro-growth strategies announced by the government will be needed to help the Australian economy recover from lock down measures.

The Financial Review is reporting “tax and industrial relations reform, deregulation and fast-tracked infrastructure are back in the mix as Scott Morrison says an aggressive pro-business investment strategy must be pursued if the country is to claw its way out of the pandemic-induced recession”.

Mr Cunningham said “at the end of this we are going to have a very different looking Australia and we are going to have a very different way of doing things”.

“So much gets bogged down in red tape and regulation and businesses who are just out there trying to have a go get caught up in the mess”.

“Often life is made so difficult for them they just throw the towel in”.

The Government’s role as the economy recovers will be “to get out of the way”.
