Premier Marshall's Address to the Public Sector

The Premier of South Australia will address the public sector to share his key themes of government. Join us on the 11th of September to find out how you can be a part of a Strong Plan for Real Change.

The government has a broad economic agenda aimed at accelerating growth in areas such as economic development, job creation and improved service delivery. The implications for the public sector are innumerable. The public sector workforce not only affects the quality of public services the state relies on, but also the productivity of the states economy and the living standards of all South Australians.
