As reported previously, this year, in line with the Federal Government and all other States and Territories, our Budget process has been suspended. Instead QLD Treasury will publish a COVID-19 Fiscal and Economic Review (C19-FER) in September this year, produced to the same standards used for the annual Mid-Year Fiscal and Economic Review (MYFER). The Treasurer will appear before Parliament’s Economic and Governance Committee in relation to C19-FER. I have advocated in the past for improvements to our Budget and Estimates processes, and we need to ensure that this review allows Queenslanders to be fully informed about expenditure, the reinvigoration of our economy, and the fiscal forecast prior to the end of this term in October.
