Partnering for the future

Queenslanders’ vision sets a clear path over the next 30 years: to make our economy more productive, our communities and regions more liveable and our environment more sustainable.

While government has key responsibilities in providing quality frontline services and helping to drive productivity, jobs growth and social wellbeing, all Queenslanders have a role to play in achieving our community’s goals.


The Queensland Government will consult with the community, business and industry to listen to local concerns before taking action. By working together we will achieve the best outcomes as collaboration enables better information sharing and more informed decision-making.

All Queenslanders will be encouraged to participate in community engagement activities whether through Community Cabinets, local meetings or specific consultation events.


Partnerships offer an effective mechanism to harness Queensland talent and resources more effectively. Our government will prioritise partnership projects that include funding commitments from local and Commonwealth government, business and community groups.

Intergovernmental relations

We will work closely with all levels of government to pursue and advocate for local and state interests.

The Partners in Government Agreement, with the Local Government Association of Queensland on behalf of local governments, will help enable effective coordination and consultation in delivering services to improve Queenslanders’ quality of life.

The Queensland Government will continue to work collaboratively with the Commonwealth Government and other states and territories on federation and tax reform.

We will also be a powerful voice in the Council of Australian Governments, standing up for a fair and sustainable model for distribution of national resources and recognition of individual state competitive advantages.  

Business and industry

The Queensland Government is committed to driving positive business sentiment, growing workforce participation and supporting public and private efforts to grow the economy. This growth can only be achieved through strong partnerships between governments and business and industry.

The government will continue to offer clear direction about what our communities seek for our state in the future. Aligning with their vision will harness our collective wisdom and resources to overcome challenges and seize opportunities.

Individuals and community

The Queensland Government supports people taking an active role in their community and encourages participation in discussions about how Queensland prepares for the future.
