Our priorities

Queensland Treasury and Trade is focussed on restoring Queensland's position of financial strength through managing a fiscal strategy underpinned by the Government's four principles.

The four principles are:

  • to stabilise then significantly reduce debt
  • to achieve and maintain a General Government sector fiscal balance by 2014-15
  • to maintain a competitive tax environment for business
  • to target full funding of long term liabilities in accordance with actuarial advice.

To deliver this strategy, Queensland Treasury and Trade's role is to:

  • deliver the Queensland State Budget with a strong focus on fiscal repair and consolidation
  • provide sound and timely advice on the State's economy to the Treasurer and other key stakeholders
  • manage the State's revenue base in a competitive and sustainable tax environment
  • assist Queensland companies to increase their global competitiveness and expand markets
  • coordinate regulatory and sectoral reform across Government to enhance productivity and reduce red tape
  • provide research, advice and direction to support the Government's objectives in economic, regulatory and sectoral reform and governance
  • investigate and evaluate funding, procurement and delivery models for the State's infrastructure.
