Queensland State of the State address 2019

Oct 30
CEDA welcomes Premier of Queensland, the Hon. Annastacia Palaszczuk, to deliver the 2019 State of the State address and her analysis of the State’s performance and prospects.


The Hon. Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, Premier of Queensland and Minister for Trade

Event overview

CEDA's State of the State address provides an annual opportunity for you, your senior colleagues and guests to hear directly from the Premier of Queensland.

This year as we examine the State of the State, it is timely to consider:

  • How our $350 billion economy is performing and question drivers of growth;
  • Analyse the implications of a slowing national economy and increasing state debt;
  • Discuss the forward investment required to ensure Queensland’s economic success.

Gather your colleagues and guests to hear the Queensland Premier's annual major keynote economic address and discuss the forward direction for our State.

As an independent national organisation CEDA hosts State of the State addresses across the country each year.
