Indooroopilly’s future prosperity took a step forward today with the release of The Queensland Plan: Queenslanders’ 30-year vision.

Member for Indooroopilly, Scott Emerson, said Queenslanders had spoken loud and clear in The Queensland Plan saying that the economy, education and the regions were the keys to a vibrant and prosperous state.

Mr Emerson said the plan reflected a range of community aspirations and would play a key role in helping unite business, industry, community and government activities right across the state.

“The Queensland Plan is the result of the largest community engagement activity of its kind ever undertaken in Australia,” Mr Emerson said.

“The ‘people’s plan’ provides key goals on jobs and the economy with agreement among 80,000 participating Queenslanders that they wanted their state to be the number one performing economy in Australia which provided the best job opportunities in the nation.

“Queenslanders have set ambitious goals to help drive our state forward over the next three decades. Through The Queensland Plan process, we now have a long-term vision for the state that essentially all Queenslanders have signed on for and that’s a powerful thing which we should all be excited about.

“It offers a wonderful opportunity for Indooroopilly constituents to think outside the square in how we grow our economy and strengthen our community connections.

“While we won’t always agree on how to achieve all our goals, it is important to keep the conversation going to find common ground and new ways to collaborate.”

The Queensland Plan sets a road map for state growth and prosperity across nine foundation areas and identifies 20 targets. Implementation will involve contributions from all levels of government, business, industry, community organisations and individuals; and progress will be monitored and reported on annually.

“The Queensland Plan” Ambassadors Council has been announced and it is their role to engage with the community and government to oversee the plan’s implementation and encourage participation from across the state,” Mr Emerson said

“I encourage everyone to work with the Ambassadors and to read The Queensland Plan and think about how you can contribute.

“I look forward to working with the people of the Indooroopilly electorate to make our vision a reality.”
