Deloitte Queensland managing partner John Greig said the state was feeling its way through a challenging transition from reliance on a sustained resources and construction boom.

“All Queenslanders – especially those in regional Queensland – are grappling with the same issue: the lack of a clear shared vision for the future of Queensland,” Mr Greig said.

“In the absence of any shared sense of state-wide purpose or intent, many Queenslanders are struggling to know how best to respond.”

The Queensland government was contacted for a response.

In June, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said her government had turned the $180 million Advance Queensland Innovation and jobs plan into a $405 million whole-of-government innovation agenda, to create “jobs of the future”.

“Advance Queensland is key to our state’s economic diversity,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“We are backing the innovators – start-ups, small business, school kids, farmers, scientists, researchers, tradespeople, engineers, doctors, teachers – because that will create a new era of opportunity for Queenslanders.”

Deloitte Queensland has launched FutureNow, described as a way to start a conversation about a vision for Queensland in 2027.

Over the next six months, Deloitte plans to work with government, communities, individuals and businesses to create a road map to a vital and successful Queensland.

The plan is described as a piece of “co-designed thought leadership” to develop an economic and broader policy narrative to help shape the future of Queensland.

Deloitte Access Economics chief executive officer Mike Kissane said the five key areas that would be important to the state over the next 10 years were tourism, agribusiness, education, health and ageing and transformation in energy and resourcing.

It is the first step in the Shaping Future Cities Queensland initiative, aimed to deliver a similar blueprint for Queensland in April 2017.

The steering committee includes members of QSuper, Uniting Care Queensland, the Local Government Association of Queensland, the Queensland Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, Springfield Land Corporation, Star Entertainment Group, AgForce Queensland, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland, the University of Queensland and the Queensland Resources Council.

In its initial meeting, the group cited the state’s “lucky” geography and climate, world-class resources and energy, renowned universities, health facilities and agriculture capacities as examples of its diversity.
