Clients in the Media using REMPLAN

Frankston City Council - St Kilda Football Club

St Kilda’s move to Frankston will give the Saints brand new state of the art facilities, but the benefits for the local community will be immense.

Frankston City Council’s own REMPLAN economic impact study has forecast over $42.5m p.a. of on-flow benefits to the local community once the Saints settle in Frankston.

While the oval will be predominantly used by the Saints it will also be available as a training venue for the Dandenong Stingrays and a game day venue for local junior competitions and local community groups.

Cheap Imports Hurting Aussie Producers

Weekly Times Now, July 30 2013

NATIONALS Senator Bridget McKenzie says Australia needs safeguards against the dumping of cheap imported fruit.

''Tomato and fruit processing plays a vital role in the Goulburn Valley economy and not just through direct employment.''

Economic analysis by REMPLAN shows that for every 100 jobs lost in the fruit manufacturing sector, up to a further 221 jobs could be lost in the Shepparton economy as a flow-on effect.
Skilled migration ‘too good to lose’ in south-west


The Standard, July 17, 2013
“The reality of the skilled migration program is that for a small investment it has brought about significant economic and flow-on benefits,” Mr Hoggan (Great South Coast Skilled Migration project manager) said.

“Looking at Moyne Shire alone, REMPLAN economic modelling data estimates that 30 skilled candidates generate annually $14.6 million in direct (productivity) output, and industry and consumption flow-on effects.

“While some skilled migration might occur without the program, it has been widely stated that many employers would endure a skill shortage within their business rather than attempt to fill a vacancy through skilled migration unassisted.” 

Mr Hoggan said the region’s total skilled migrant recruitment for the five years to June 30 was 78 in Warrnambool, 44 in Glenelg, 34 in Corangamite/Colac Otway, 33 in Southern Grampians and 30 in Moyne.
