New figures from the latest ANZ Property Council survey again confirm Queensland is falling behind the rest of Australia under a do-nothing Palaszczuk Government.

LNP Shadow Treasurer Scott Emerson said Queensland has experienced the worst fall in confidence of any state over the last year.

“Queensland was the only state to see confidence go backwards in the past 12 months, while other states power ahead,” Mr Emerson said.

“The Palaszczuk Government continues to be seen as the worst-performing government in Australia by the property and construction industry.

“Not once since the state election in 2015 has Labor been viewed positively by this industry, which employs hundreds of thousands of Queenslanders.

“Worryingly, expectations for the Queensland economy lag well behind the national average and major states like New South Wales and Victoria, which is who we should be competing with.

“This is just more compelling evidence that Queensland is stagnating under this do-nothing Labor Government.

“Building approvals have fallen for 13 straight months and investment has declined, all while we continue to lead the nation in job losses.

“Only the LNP will deliver for the construction and manufacturing industry, one of our six key drivers, so we can create jobs and build a better Queensland.”
