What we do

Queensland Treasury’s vision is a strong economy for all Queenslanders. Our purpose is to drive government priorities through our expert advice and services.

Grow the Queensland economy and create jobs

As a central agency, Treasury drives the government’s plan to grow the Queensland economy and create jobs in line with the government’s economic recovery priorities and longer-term economic strategy.

To grow the economy and create jobs, our role includes:

  • incentivising private sector investment to improve competitiveness and productivity
  • attracting and stimulating investment in priority industries
  • ensuring well researched policies and strategies that further the productivity and sustainability of a vibrant Queensland economy
  • enhancing Queensland’s policy influence and position through effective intergovernmental relations.

Deliver fiscal sustainability

Treasury manages the state’s balance sheet to ensure it works effectively in support of the government’s priorities. Our role is to develop a fiscal plan and deliver the government’s Savings and Debt Plan, while maintaining and continuing to improve the state’s revenue base through best practice revenue collection and penalty debt management. We assess and implement budget strategies to improve outcomes, agency and corporation performance, deliver fiscal sustainability, and proactively plan for the future. We also support the development of, and leverage, the government’s capital program to support economic recovery and productivity.

Drive public sector reform

Treasury continues to deliver reform and improve government businesses and services for all Queenslanders. We derive the benefits from the Savings and Debt Plan to deliver better services while continuing to drive Queensland public sector transformation following COVID-19.
