The Queensland Government welcomes the road map outlined by federal Minister for Indigenous Australians, Ken Wyatt, yesterday.

Mr Wyatt has outlined a positive agenda to help close the gap for Indigenous Australians and I look forward to working constructively with him to create genuine and tangible outcomes for our communities.

As a nation, we still have a long way to go and addressing intergenerational disadvantage is an incredibly complex task that requires commitment at all levels of Government to tackle.

I fully support Mr Wyatt’s consultative approach and his commitment to co-designing any model for constitutional change.

Giving indigenous Australians a voice and ensuring genuine collaboration is a vital part of the way forward. Without this we will never achieve true and meaningful reconciliation.
