The opportunities are here, and the plan is in place

For most South Australians, a secure job means everything. That’s why the State Government is putting South Australian jobs first, modernising our economy to create new jobs in growing sectors that will drive our future for decades to come.

In our defence sector, the State has secured naval shipbuilding programs which will help our workforce move from traditional manufacturing towards hi-tech, advanced manufacturing projects.

Our State’s energy industry will soon deliver reliable, affordable and clean power for South Australians, with a $550 million plan that will increase security, boost competition and put downward pressure on prices.

Our health and life sciences industry will introduce a wide variety of jobs, with as many as 6,000 positions created in support of the NDIS alone.

Our creative services and hi-tech sector is developing our strength for innovation, fostering the growth of advanced technologies for ever-changing modern industry.

Our food, wine and tourism industry will expand, playing a vital role in the State’s economic transformation and continuing to regularly outperform all other states and territories in tourism job growth.
