Govt, builders sign accord to tackle construction problems

From Morning Report, 7:48 am on 15 April 2019

The government and the industry have signed an accord to tackle some of the issues facing the sector. It comes as some of the major players in the industry have got into trouble - Ebert and Arrow Construction folded last year and Fletcher Building incurred massive losses. The Construction Sector Accord is aimed at tackling issues such as dodgy building, company collapses, skill shortages and the consents process. With us now is the Minister for Building and Construction Jenny Salesa.
