Our Priorities: Sharing Prosperity

Whole-of-government targets to deliver better outcomes for all Western Australians

How do we focus the capacity of Government to solve the problems that seem unsolvable? In the world of modern politics and civic life, despite more information and expertise than ever before, it seems like the priorities of the community are forever out of reach.

Our Priorities is this Government’s response to that challenge. A statement of intent for the State of Western Australia. A recognition that the problems that we are trying to solve are not just the responsibility of one department, one portfolio or even Government alone.

Measurable targets from independent sources are crucial, so that accountability and results cannot be lost beneath rhetoric.

I want all of Western Australia to share in our State’s prosperity, but we cannot achieve that with a business as usual approach.

These targets are ambitious, and they will take a change in the culture of Government to achieve. However, by working together, we will unlock the potential of this great State, economically, socially and environmentally.
