Queensland budget 2016: Premier makes good on innovation promise

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (13.6.16) on details of the state government’s innovation funding initiatives, with new measures released as part of the budget to be handed down by Treasurer Curtis Pitt.

‘The Palaszczuk government has finally put its money where it’s mouth is, committing $225 million to boost its innovation program, nearly 18 months after declaring it a priority.

‘Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the “acceleration” of the Advance Queensland policy as the “budget centrepiece” with the $225 million plan boosting the overall spend to $405 million, taking into account the $180 million set aside for innovation in the last budget.

‘Of that, $22.7 million will be spent boosting small business, while $40 million will be spent on attracting business to Queensland.’
