THE Clarence Valley has won another seven jobs, which the NSW Government say are courtesy of its Northern Rivers Jobs Plan.

"I along with my North Coast Nationals colleagues secured the Northern Rivers Jobs Plan, or NRJP, earlier this year," Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis said.

"This new Clarence project will see the establishment in Grafton of a factory for the manufacture of Aboriginal-designed and made ceramic tourism and art products, with the creation of seven new jobs"

"I congratulate the people at the Gurehlgam Corporation for their successful application."

In the last round, the NRJP helped Grafton family business Walsh Architectural Salvage create 2.5 new positions.

The Government also delivered more than 100 NSW public sector positions being created in or relocated to Grafton.

"Today's announcement is great news for the region and illustrates the NSW Liberal and National Government's support for our local economies," Mr Gulaptis concluded.
