“The Australian economy begins 2021 in a very strong position.” - Josh Frydenberg
For the first time since records began more than sixty years ago, GDP growth is above 3% for two consecutive quarters.
Australia’s performance on both the health and the economic fronts is world-leading.
Today’s National Accounts show the Australian economy is strengthening and our economic recovery plan is working.
“We are on your side. If you have a go in this country you’ll get a go. That’s what fairness in Australia means. My ambition is for an even stronger Australia – to keep our economy strong, to keep Australians safe and to keep Australians together.”
