A future Liberal National Party Government will create jobs, build stronger families, build the roads, bridges and dams Queensland needs, provide safe and reliable communities across Queensland and deliver better government – not more government.
LNP Leader Tim Nicholls today outlined the LNP’s plan to Build a Better Queensland during an address at the Queensland Media Club today.
“When I was 12 my parents moved our family to Queensland because they saw a state that offered great opportunity – a state not hamstrung by rules and regulations,” Mr Nicholls said.
“Unfortunately after years of Labor Governments, this spirit has slipped away. Things seem to take forever to get done while costing more, and no one seems to be able to explain why.
“I love Queensland and I’m ready to lead – to make sure our great state grows and prospers once again.
“An LNP Government will reopen the State for business, to help create the wealth and jobs for this generation and those to come.
“The LNP recognises that the six key drivers of the Queensland economy are tourism, resources, agriculture, construction and manufacturing, education and services, science and technology – and we will be announcing policies around these areas very soon.
“We know that without a strong economy, Government will not have the money to realise our ambition.
“An LNP Government will also build stronger families and provide safe and liveable communities across Queensland by restoring police powers that have been stripped away by Labor.
“We will give police the necessary laws to move drugs like ice out of our communities and organised crime out of Queensland, after Annastacia Palaszczuk invited bikie gangs back in.
“We will build the roads and bridges this state so desperately needs – and dams to boost agricultural production and provide water security.
Mr Nicholls said the LNP team had learned a hard lesson from the past, having moved too quickly and failing to take Queenslanders on the journey when last in Government.
“After almost 20 years out of office, there was an urgency to get things done – and there’s no doubt we had major problems to solve – but I will not be wasting the lessons learnt from those days,” he said.
“What’s clear to Queenslanders is that the Annastacia Palaszczuk experiment has failed and her wait-and-see, review-not-do approach is pushing Queensland further behind than ever.
“Under my leadership, a Liberal Nation Government won’t stand for stagnation – we’ll put Queenslanders first and get on with the job.
“The choice is clear – the LNP is a team with enthusiasm, experience and energy – a team committed to five clear priorities to build a Better Queensland – a team with a clear six-point economic plan for jobs, jobs, jobs.
“Together, we will be a common-sense Government that listens, plans and acts to Build a Better Queensland.”
An LNP Government will focus on five key priorities to build a better Queensland:
- Create jobs across Queensland and better manage our finances
- Build stronger families
- Provide safe and liveable communities
- Build the roads, bridges and dams we need and
- Deliver better government – not more government.
An LNP Government will reduce the risk to our economic security by focusing on six drivers to strengthen and diversify the Queensland economy. The six drivers are:
- Construction and Manufacturing and
- Services, Science and Technology and
