The Australian Government has handed down its 2020–21 Budget. The Budget includes measures our portfolio will implement as part of the Government’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the global and domestic contexts in which we operate. As Australia rebuilds, our portfolio will play a central role in the Government’s commitment to:

  • reopen and strengthen the economy
  • create jobs
  • pave a clear road ahead for the nation

To support the Government’s agenda and secure future growth, we are leveraging and building on Australia’s strengths by:

  • investing in high value-add manufacturing
  • locking in lower energy costs
  • investing in clean technology and emissions reduction
  • building our resources industries
  • accelerating digital uptake by Australian businesses
  • making the most of our national science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) capabilities

We will collaborate across government and work in partnership with the private sector to support economic recovery.
