Property industry ranks Palaszczuk Government as worst in the nation

Thursday, April 16, 2020

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has been ranked the worst in the nation for the fourth consecutive quarter when it comes to managing and planning for growth, according to a damning ANZ / Property Council of Australia survey released today.

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said Labor’s high-taxing and anti-jobs agenda had brought Queensland’s property industry to its knees.

“Queensland was more exposed to the economic fallout of the coronavirus than any other state because of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s economic mismanagement,” Mr Mander said.

“This damning survey is a vote of no confidence in the Palaszczuk Labor Government to plan and manage the economy.

“Queensland consistently had one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation before the coronavirus outbreak.

“Jackie Trad has introduced no less than six new or increased property taxes in the last two budgets alone.

“Only the LNP has a plan to get Queensland working again through a no-new-tax guarantee and vital investment in new roads and dams.”
