How good is Queensland!
Exciting news for Australia and Queensland - we’re now a step closer to hosting another Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Overnight the International Olympic Committee announced it will enter exclusive negotiations with Queensland for the 2032 event. This is a hugely positive development but we still have a lot of work to do.
Since the Federal Government announced our support for the bid in 2019, we’ve been working with the state and local governments, the Australian Olympic Committee and Paralympics Australia to put forward the best possible case for Queensland to host 2032.
The event is potentially a game-changer for Queensland.
It will see the Sunshine State beamed around the globe, while delivering an economic and jobs boom.
We saw how Sydney 2000 brought our nation together and took Australian sport to a new level, and that’s what we’ll be aiming to do again if we’re successful in hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games again in 2032.
The best form of welfare is a job. The Morrison Government continues to be focused on job creation. 94% of the 1.3 million people who lost their jobs or were stood down on zero hours are now back in work.
Australia's economic recovery is underway and our labour market has been enormously resilient in the face of this huge economic shock.
Stronger. Safer. Together.
“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.”
