The Australian government is focusing on boosting jobs and economic growth as it prepares for the annual budget, which is still scheduled to be delivered on May 10, according to Cabinet Secretary Arthur Sinodinos.
â€œThe overriding objective is how do various government policies contribute to higher jobs and growth, in other words how do we continue to support the transition thatâ€™s going on in economy,â€ he told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview on Sunday. â€œThe No. 1 issue coming back to us is â€˜Where are the jobs going to be coming from?â€â€™
Australiaâ€™s budget day â€œwill still be the 10th of May,â€ he said. â€œThere has been a lot of speculation about that, but thatâ€™s the date the Treasurer has got firmly fixed in his diary.â€
