VIDEO: ICBA president Philip Hochstein
The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association recently held its annual general meeting, and ICBA president Philip Hochstein was on hand to speak to the Journal of Commerce about the past year and his hopes for the industry in the year to come.
Hochstein discussed the policies he would like to see put into place by Christy Clark’s newly-elected government, including pursuing projects such as new LNG plants, mines and pipelines, and said the governments should remove impediments to making those projects and other forms of economic growth happen.
Hochstein also addressed the impending labour shortage that several mega-projects will create, but said industry will find a way to get the appropriate level of manpower to ensure the economy continues to run smoothly as it ramps up.
