Outbound legal service providers are seeking a contract with the city to provide legal services to the people of Sydney.
The Victorian Government says it needs more outbound services in the CBD, with the ABC News website reporting a number of companies in the city have signed up to provide outbound service.
“Outbound services are the most urgent priority in this area,” Premier Daniel Andrews said.
“They’re the ones that are going to be the most affected by this winter.”
He said the government would continue to support businesses in the area, including the legal industry.
“The CBD is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and this is the time to make sure that the outbound business community is up and running,” Mr Andrews said, adding that the government was working closely with the private sector and businesses to develop new outbound solutions.
“As you know we’ve been working closely over the last 12 months with the legal profession to identify a new and improved outbound network to support those in the hospitality industry who are already operating outside of the CBD.”
Mr Andrews said the city would also “develop a more robust network” to accommodate a larger number of businesses.
“I’m confident we will be able to accommodate the growth of the outback,” he said.
Outbound legal firms and legal services providers will be required to have a contract from the City of Sydney to provide services to businesses in Melbourne.
The ABC has contacted the City for comment and will update this story when we hear back.
