The Queensland Government’s economic roadmap for the next 10 years is now available.

Governing for Growth: Economic Strategy and Action Plan (PDF icon 4 MB) sets out the government’s direction and priorities to steer economic growth in Queensland. The plan identifies over 100 new initiatives to help build a dynamic economy, in which business can invest and grow and communities can flourish.

The Governing for Growth strategy was jointly announced by the Queensland Premier and Deputy Premier at Queensland Parliament on 11 February 2014 and a six monthly progress report on the initiative has just been completed.

The strategy provides an invaluable blueprint for industry about the government’s way ahead. It details all the government’s big economic initiatives and will provide the private sector with the certainty on government direction needed to make informed investment decisions.

The next actions and reforms focus on:

  • Economy - creating the most competitive business environment in Australia
  • Infrastructure - better planning, delivery of infrastructure and greater opportunities for private sector investment
  • Regions - capitalising on Queensland’s unique assets and projects that boost regional economies.

The strategy has been developed by the department in consultation with other government agencies, industry and stakeholders.

The strategy is a follow up to the framework Governing for Growth: Enabling a strong Queensland economy (PDF icon 536 KB) released in July 2013. The framework set out six priority areas for economic reform to create the conditions for private sector to invest, innovate, grow and create new jobs.
