In a global environment of change, Victoria's continued economic growth relies on the forward-thinking initiatives of today.

Concentrating on high growth industry sectors, the government has developed a suite of Future Industries sector strategies, in consultation with businesses, research organisations, industry groups, unions and independent experts. The strategies are guiding the government's investments and activity.

Priority actions for government under the strategies include investment facilitation, grants and other programs, targeted infrastructure improvements, programs to build workforce skills, and collaborative initiatives to support the adoption of global best practices.
