A strategic approach to increasing the participation of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland's economy 2016-2022 (Moving Ahead).
Improvements to training and upskilling within a population provide a significant opportunity to increase workforce participation, improve productivity and create opportunities for growth.
We need to prioritise the improvement of economic participation outcomes for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, and build a pipeline of future opportunity.
Industry is a key partner with significant resources and expertise to contribute to closing the gap in economic participation outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.
Indigenous entrepreneurs and small businesses need to be supported to develop and access relevant market opportunities in order to create jobs now and into the future.
We need to overcome barriers that prohibit economic participation, and support individuals to ensure they gain the maximum benefit from available opportunities.
A new approach is required to ensure Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples are better able to participate in Queensland's economy.
The successful implementation of the Moving Ahead strategy relies on a genuine partnership approach between all Queensland Government departments.
