Dear fellow Victorians,
By working with the State and Federal Governments, we have all achieved an extraordinary outcome in supressing COVID-19 that makes Victoria – and Australia – the envy of the world.
We appreciate everyone who has contributed to this achievement, especially our essential workers. You have our sincere thanks.
This achievement, however, has come at a significant cost to our local economy, our community and to our way of life.
With COVID-19 now apparently under a measure of control, it is urgent that the Andrews Labor Government puts in place a clear plan that enables us to take back our lives and rebuild our local communities.
Many hard lessons have been learnt from the virus outbreak; we now need to take action to deal with these shortcomings, such as our relative lack of local manufacturing capacity.
The Liberals and Nationals have worked constructively during the virus pandemic to provide positive suggestions, and to hold the Andrews Government to account for its actions.
In that same constructive manner we have prepared this Plan: our positive suggestions about what we believe should be the key priorities for the Government in the recovery phase.
These suggestions are necessarily bold and ambitious, because we don’t believe that business as usual is going to be enough to secure our recovery.
No single political party has a mortgage on good ideas. With Victoria’s future at stake, the Liberals and Nationals urge the Andrews Labor Government to adopt our Plan to Get Victoria Back to Work and Back in Business.
