The discussion focused on the four key themes identified:

It’s a conversation with the unique potential to position the state as a contemporary global player, through mindful policy and investment in areas ranging from workforce development and sustainability to innovation capability, the ongoing energy  transformation and the elevation of regional communities.

We invite you to watch the Business Matters event online as this is an important conversation, at such a critical time in Queensland history. 

As the state's peak business body, we are at the forefront of a conversation that comes down to one key outcome: positioning the Queensland business community and economy beyond 2032.
