    Government’s objectives for the community

    The government objectives for the community focus on the complex challenges facing our state that require thoughtful and innovative solutions.

    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 and reports on achievements to the community.

    2020–2021 was an election year and the returning government tabled new objectives for the community based on the Unite and Recover – Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan released in August 2020.

    Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan is focused on continuing to protect the health of Queenslanders, creating more jobs, and working together to strengthen the economy. The government’s objectives for the community are based on Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan with additional objectives relating to supporting jobs, protecting the environment, and backing frontline services.

    The objectives are long-term and tackle complex problems, which can only be achieved by everyone — governments, industry, and the community — working together. As the government’s lead agency, DPC plays a key role in overseeing whole-of-government implementation, communication, engagement and reporting on our collective progress.

    Further detail about DPC’s role in delivering on the government priorities is detailed throughout this report.
