Growing our Economy

South Australia needs a competitive, dynamic economy that provides new job opportunities, fosters entrepreneurialism and strengthens the future of our State.

 

We Believe

  • You deserve every opportunity to have a stable job in a growing economy
  • Having a secure job or small business in a productive and competitive industry is key to our future confidence
  • Growing South Australia’s competitive advantage in a range of industries means new opportunities for growth and jobs
  • We must foster and encourage South Australia’s entrepreneurial spirit to ensure individuals and businesses benefit from innovation
  • The prosperity of the State demands vibrant and productive regional communities
  • Every individual and business should have the opportunity to improve their prosperity, regardless of size, physical location or their industry
  • Government should support small business as the backbone of our economy
  • The role of Government is to create the right environment to allow businesses to grow

 

How we will achieve this together

  • 1.1 Reducing the tax burden on South Australian businesses and households to ease employment costs and relieve household budgets
  • 1.2 Cutting red tape and unnecessary regulation that inhibit growth, allowing businesses to focus on creating more jobs
  • 1.3 Investing in programs to increase export potential of businesses to drive sales and opportunities
  • 1.4 Fostering entrepreneurialism by supporting the efforts of individuals and businesses in taking up and commercialising new innovations and technologies
  • 1.5 Investing in productive infrastructure that drives the expansion of existing industries and unlocks new opportunities in the industries of the future
  • 1.6 Unlocking the resources and production of our regional areas and ensuring growth opportunities for regional businesses and industries
