Our Future State

Our Future State is a clear plan to advance Queensland—both now and into the future. We have to confront and tackle the major challenges facing our state with a strong sense of purpose, focus and commitment.

If we don’t prioritise these challenges now, they’ll only become harder down the track. Our Future State: Advancing Queensland’s Priorities are the government’s objectives for the community.
