Queensland Budget FY23

Ensuring business is ahead of the game

The FY23 Queensland budget needs to be a budget which ensures Queensland business is ahead of the game.

This budget should continue to address the past period of upheaval, while also future proofing businesses, removing hurdles and enabling our skilled workforces to provide Queensland with a competitive advantage. 

We have put forward a robust budget submission based on real feedback from our members and businesses across the state. 

We have applied a practical and strategic lens to our recommendations to provide support for the day-to-day needs of our business community right now, while also looking to transform the economy over the next decade so the whole state benefits from the Olympic Games. 

To do this, our key recommendations for this budget are to: 

  1. Remove hurdles: reduce operating costs and complexity in doing business. 
  2. Smart infrastructure – connect regions to build resilience. 
  3. Skilled workforce – drive upskilling in emerging industries and markets. 
  4. Sustainable practices – develop and enhance products and services for future sustainability. 
  5. Connected businesses – advance technology to generate opportunities.
