Our department

We're working to shape Queensland’s future by driving economic growth and enabling well-planned, inclusive and resilient local communities.

We connect with industry, businesses, community and government at all levels to create place-based solutions that leverage regional strengths and unlock sustainable growth. Success is:

  • a future-focused, innovative, well-planned and diverse economy
  • growth in investment and priority industry sectors
  • coordinated, integrated, interconnected opportunities for regions, industry sectors and the private sectors
  • leveraged opportunities to maximise jobs for Queenslanders in developments, priority industries and associated supply chains, and circular, localised economies
  • sustainable, capable and accountable local governments enabling thriving local communities.
