The Queensland Treasury Annual Report 2019-2020 is an integral part of our corporate governance framework and one of the main tools we use to ensure we are accountable to the Queensland Parliament and the community about our activities.
These annual financial statement requirements include the Minimum Reporting Requirements and assist agencies in the preparation of their financial statements. The requirements provide updates on new and revised accounting policies and standards and additional guidance and advice on the application of such policies and standards.
Our strategic plan outlines how we will achieve our vision to grow the Queensland economy and improve the wellbeing of all Queenslanders.
It reflects our purpose to leverage our Government-wide perspective to provide trusted, impartial and influential advice and services to clients, and partner for better outcomes in matters relating to the economy and state finances, revenue and commercial services and support for fair, safe and productive workplaces.
