Following is the statement by the Chairman of the Construction Industry Council, Mr Keith Kerr, today (February 1)in response to his new appointment:
"I am most delighted and honoured to be appointed by the Secretary for the Environment, Transport and Works as the first Chairman of the Construction Industry Council.
"Having served on both the Construction Industry Review Committee and the Provisional Construction Industry Co-ordination Board (PCICB), I have been able to see the PCICB evolve into a forum pooling the industry stakeholders together which has helped them focus on strategic issues that are critical to the long-term development of the construction industry.
I am confident that based on the solid foundation laid by PCICB, the council will become the key body to promote self-regulation within the industry and proper liaison with Government. I expect it to grow from strength to strength in the coming years."
