The right choices securing better days ahead

Latest News, Local Issues, Press Releases

The Turnbull Government is making the right choices to ensure our nation’s remarkable economic growth continues, so we can secure better days ahead for hard-working Australians.

We are making the right choices to deliver the growth that secures more and better paid jobs, by reducing taxes for the 24,420 small and medium businesses in Higgins and delivering the largest investment in infrastructure in Australian history.

Our investment in critical infrastructure will revitalise our cities and grow our regions. It includes a $10 billion National Rail Program, including funds to plan the Melbourne Airport Rail Link.

We are making the right choices to improve the health of Australians by increasing funding and support for Medicare and record funding for public hospitals, and fully funding the NDIS.

We are delivering record funding for schools.

We are helping first homebuyers, downsizers and those in need of social housing. First homebuyers will be helped to save for their housing deposit with incentives through reduced taxes.

The Government will continue to ensure that multinationals pay the right amount of tax in Australia. Already, this financial year, our actions have raised $2.9 billion in tax liabilities for the benefit of Australian taxpayers.

We are continuing to make our financial system better for customers and taxpayers through greater competition, accountability and fairness. We will legislate for a one-stop-shop to deal with all financial disputes.

The Turnbull Government has made the right choices to secure more jobs and create more opportunities for Australians.
