OUR PLAN FOR A STRONG NEW ECONOMY

The Coalition Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda will help create a strong new economy with more jobs, by investing in the talents and ideas of the Australian people.

Small business is the engine room of the Australian economy, employing 4.7 million Australians. The Coalition Government’s Ten Year Enterprise Tax Plan will support growth, higher wages and jobs by lowering the tax rate for companies over time to an internationally competitive level.

The Government has no higher responsibility than keeping Australia safe and secure. The Coalition has a responsible, long-term plan for Australia’s national security.

To protect Australians from the threat of terrorism, the Government has boosted funding for our law enforcement, intelligence and security agencies by $1.3 billion since August 2014.

The Coalition Government is investing record levels in our schools with total Commonwealth funds reaching $73.6 billion over the next four years. This is an increase of 26%. School funding will continue to increase each and every year going forward.
