Ministerial statement

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Health, Minister for Industrial Relations and Treasurer) (3.45), by leave: Today in my first sitting week as Chief Minister I would like to take this opportunity to outline to the community a statement of my government’s priorities over the next 12-month period. Through this statement today I will set out the government’s top priorities. I will also outline the key projects that we are working on in order to progress and meet the challenges these priorities bring, and I will also set clear goals for which to track our progress and report back to the community on how we are going in doing what we said we would do.

We are a government with a focus on preserving and improving the quality of life that Canberra people enjoy. We ask for and we listen to the aspirations and the concerns of Canberra people, and we respond to their needs. The government’s purpose and direction, our foresight and strength and what we stand for are embodied in our priorities. It is important to point out, though, that these priorities link into the deliberations and findings of the time to talk community consultations which occurred last year.

It is also important to state up front that these priorities do not encompass all the work the ACT government currently performs or all the work the government will do. In addition, these are not priorities that go to the mechanics and structure of our public service—significant work is underway here with the one ACT public service reforms
