Appointment of the Construction Industry Council

The Government today (February 1) announced the setting up of the Construction Industry Council and the appointment of Mr Keith Kerr as its chairman. Mr Kerr was the Chairman of the Provisional Construction Industry Co-ordination Board (PCICB), the precursor of the council.

Twenty-four members of the council were also appointed. These are major industry stakeholders including employers, professionals or consultants, contractors, subcontractors, materials and equipment suppliers, people representing training institutes or academic or research institutions, as well as people who are from trade unions representing construction workers.
