Economy and Jobs

Jurisdiction: Queensland

How can we create more jobs and grow the Queensland economy?

Queensland’s $349 billion modern, vibrant economy is supported by a range of industries and services.

Over the past two decades, Queensland’s economic growth has generally exceeded the national average thanks to developments such as the resources investment boom and the associated upturn in LNG exports.

Health, Mining & Energy, Agriculture, Construction, Education & Training, Financial & Professional Services and Tourism are the major contributors to economic growth in Queensland.

Queensland’s population could be more than 8 million by 2066.
