Premier Steven Marshall will today hold the inaugural meeting of the Economic Advisory Council.
The Economic Advisory Council, established earlier this month, brings together some of the sharpest minds across industry to provide advice to the State Liberal Government, and how it can best implement its plan to grow the economy.
Ahead of the inaugural meeting, Premier Steven Marshall said he was optimistic about the future of South Australia, and looks forward to implementing the State Government’s plan to get the State moving again.
“Today’s meeting will set the agenda for ongoing discussions with business leaders about how we can best stimulate strong economic growth and jobs creation here in South Australia,’’ Premier Marshall said.
“The Economic Advisory Council is made up of some of South Australia’s sharpest and most progressive minds across industry who are happy to challenge the status quo to drive economic performance.
“The Liberal Government was elected on a clear platform to reinvigorate and grow our state’s economy, through lower taxes and increased exports and investment.
“As prominent and respected leaders in their fields, the members are all true assets to the state, and I look forward to them bringing their unique insights and perspective to the table.
“I am committed to working with each of the council members to make sure that we take full advantage of the opportunities in front of South Australia.”
Members of the Premier’s Economic Advisory Council have a wide range of industry backgrounds from information technology entrepreneurship, defence, banking and finance, education and tourism to mining and scientific research and development.
The Council is comprised of:
• Jacqui McGill;
• Professor Tanya Monro;
• Nick Reade;
