The 2020-21 Queensland Budget was tabled in State Parliament on Tuesday 1 December.
Message from The Treasurer
This Budget is focused on delivering our promises made to the people of Queensland.
Before, and during, the 2020 State Election campaign we made more than 1,000 commitments. The hard work in delivering those commitments starts with this Budget.
It follows the path clearly outlined in our COVID-19 Fiscal and Economic Review and in the Palaszczuk Government’s Economic Recovery Plan which focused on protecting our health; creating jobs; and working together.
The efforts of Queenslanders in containing the health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have seen the State recover faster economically than others and this Budget outlines the continued steps we will be taking on that recovery.
This Budget will deliver on the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s clearly defined priorities: safeguarding Queenslanders’ health; supporting jobs; backing small business; Making it for Queensland by supporting Queensland manufacturers; building Queensland’s infrastructure; growing our regions; investing in skills; backing frontline services; and protecting our precious environment.
More than anything else, this Budget has a single overarching objective – creating more Queensland jobs.
2020 has been a testing time for workers, families and businesses and this Budget outlines the Government’s latest investments and initiatives as we continue to Unite and Recover.
