Event overview

As economies across the globe continue to face significant challenges in this era of pandemic, Queensland’s gaze is firmly on the priorities and policies geared toward recovery, protecting our communities and building back better. Our success to date flattening the COVID-19 curve has placed the health of Queenslanders in an enviable position. Achieving sustained success across our economy and society will be complex. 

In this election year the State of the State address will examine:

  • Government’s plan for Queensland’s economy and protecting health, jobs and our regions;
  • Forward economic forecasts and the investment required to ensure faster economic recovery;
  • Queensland’s place in our Federation and the future of interstate relations; and
  • How we best support key sectors across the State that will be instrumental to our recovery.
Join the State of the State address and the Premier to hear her plans for the future of Queensland.
