Event Overview

In his Queensland budget address in June, the Treasurer outlined how the strong health response to COVID-19 has delivered on Queensland’s economic recovery as well as further support for jobs and small business.

What are the new challenges for the economic recovery from delays in the national vaccine rollout and ongoing outbreaks and resulting border closures?

Join Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk for her 2021 State of the State address for an update on progress of recovery plans and policy priorities for the year ahead. The Premier’s address will also include an overview of the economic and investment benefits to Queensland of securing the Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics Games and what this means for the delivery of infrastructure to support the fastest growing population in the nation.
