The Governing for Growth Economic Strategy and Action Plan released by the government last week will help to achieve sustained high levels of economic growth over the next decade, according to Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure and Planning Jeff Seeney.

Mr Seeney said the Action Plan would ensure Queensland’s economy was strong enough to finance the infrastructure and services that Queenslanders will need into the future.

The Strategy and Action Plan has the following clear objectives:

  • To provide the best business environment in the nation to start or grow a business
  • To ensure Queensland has the infrastructure that best connects people to jobs, businesses to markets and visitors to our exceptional destinations
  • To ensure the State Government plays its full role in delivering strong, prosperous and resilient regional economies.

Mr Seeney said Governing for Growth was a whole-of-government strategy that ensured all government departments and entities are focused on growing the state’s economy and delivering the aspirations and targets to be set out in The Queensland Plan.

“The State Government has a critical role to play in establishing the right economic policy settings and programs to lay the foundations and steer the economy on a path to higher growth,” he added.
