Our priorities

The government’s direction is informed by the government objectives for the community and commitments made to the people of Queensland during the election and throughout the term of government. The Premier also sets out each Minister’s priorities in a Ministerial Charter letter.

Progress on the delivery of government commitments and priorities is reported in a number of different ways to ensure transparency and accountability.

Government’s objectives for the community

Section 10 of the Financial Accountability Act 2009 (Qld) requires that the government prepares and tables in the Legislative Assembly a statement of the government’s broad objectives for the community.

The government’s objectives for the community are built around Unite and Recover – Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan.

The objectives are long-term and can only be achieved by everyone involved working together. The objectives are:

  • Safeguarding our health: Safeguard people’s health and jobs by keeping Queensland pandemic-ready.
  • Supporting jobs: Support increased jobs in more industries to diversify the Queensland economy and build on existing strengths in agriculture, resources and tourism.
  • Backing small business: Help small business, the backbone of the state’s economy, thrive in a changing environment.
  • Making it for Queensland: Grow manufacturing across traditional and new industries, making new products in new ways and creating new jobs.
  • Building Queensland: Drive investment in the infrastructure that supports our recovery, resilience and future prosperity.
  • Growing our regions: Help Queensland’s regions grow by attracting people, talent and investment, and driving sustainable economic prosperity.
  • Investing in skills: Ensure Queenslanders have the skills they need to find meaningful jobs and set up pathways for the future.
  • Backing our frontline services: Deliver world-class frontline services in key areas such as health, education and community safety.
  • Protecting the environment: Protect and enhance our natural environment and heritage for future generations and achieve a 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030.

Government election commitments

The government is dedicated to taking strong action for the community and improving the lives of Queenslanders now and into the future. That is why it is a government priority to deliver on its election commitments.

The latest progress reports identify that 30% of the 2020 election commitments and 93% of the 2017 election commitments have been delivered.
