How well do you know your state? Get to know Queensland through key statistics and regional planning information. Our department works closely with regions to help build stronger regional economies. In this section, we discuss regional priorities and economic development, as well as how government is giving back to communities through our royalties for the regions program.

Regional priorities

Planning is being synchronised across Queensland - the department supports a coordinated approach to meet future priorities, needs and community expectations.

Regional planning

Regional planning helps Queensland plan for and improve the quality of life for all communities. It is driven by collaboration with local governments, key industry groups and the wider community to ensure the aspirations of all regional stakeholders are represented.

Regional economic development

The department is involved in building regional economies through such initiatives as the Royalites for the Regions program.
