mature-age workers to upskill or re-skill to enhance their job opportunities or seek a new career.

In closing, it is a privilege to outline my ministerial priorities for my portfolios today. I look forward to continuing to work with our amazing public sector, who are on the front line of service delivery every day, whether they are garbage collectors, bus drivers, nurses, physios, doctors, VET teachers, rangers, or all the people behind the scenes who support this work. I know they put the Canberra community first, and I again thank them for their continued service this year.

I look forward to continued engagement with stakeholders and service deliverers across my portfolios. Listening to and working with you is just another of the privileges of this role. Of course, that applies also to the broader community, whose insights and input to our work is vital. After all, you are the reason we do what we do.

I look forward to seeing our important initiatives and big projects become a reality this year. I know 2018 will be an exciting year for Canberra, and I look forward to delivering for and on behalf of people in our community. I present a copy of the statement:

Portfolio priorities 2018—Ministerial statement, 15 February 2018.

I move:

That the Assembly take note of the paper.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Portfolio priorities 2018

Ministerial statement

MR RAMSAY (Ginninderra—Attorney-General, Minister for Regulatory Services, Minister for the Arts and Community Events and Minister for Veterans and Seniors) (11.01): In considering my priorities for 2018 across my busy and diverse portfolios, I certainly see a full and exciting year ahead, with much to do. Certainly, there is much more than can be accounted for in a short statement this morning, but I will do my best to provide some information about some of the key areas.

As Attorney-General, I will be continuing with my mission to build a justice system that is even more accessible, timely and transparent. This government remains strongly committed to a justice system where the multiple, complex components work in harmony. This requires us to take a holistic approach to change, to consider the flow-on effect to other parts of the system when one component is changed. Already in this term of government we have provided additional resources to the community legal centres, the DPP and Legal Aid, reflecting that an accessible, transparent and timely justice system requires comprehensive investment, and we will continue to take this approach.
