100 Days of Action

In just 100 days, since the swearing in of the Coalition Government, we have delivered on our commitments for stronger economic and border security, more jobs, lower taxes and stronger regions.

We have announced major funding programs that deliver vital infrastructure for cities and the regions and job-creating industries into the long term.

BY WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN:

  • ensure job security and opportunity
  • guarantee access to quality health care
  • ensure a strong education system
  • have a safer community
  • grow small and medium businesses and create more jobs for our kids
  • build transport and other infrastructure that meets our needs
