The plan, released by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk on 20 August, follows extensive consultation with business, industry, regional and community stakeholders and has a three-fold mission.
- Protecting our health
- Creating jobs
- Working together
Underpinning the plan is more than $8 billion in recovery initiatives to keep the economy moving and Queenslanders in jobs – ranging from targeted support for industry and small business, to cost of living relief for households.
The plan, and the Government’s investment, supports 55,000 Queensland jobs.
The plan recognises that due to the nature of the crisis, continuing a strong health response while planning for longer-term economic recovery, are inextricably linked.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic first impacted Queensland, the Government has taken a sensible and staged approach to economic recovery.
The plan represents the culmination of that effort and lays the foundation for our longer-term recovery, with a strong focus on partnerships, to deliver the best possible outcomes.
