The Hon Jackie Trad MP
Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships
Elected in 2012 as the State Member for South Brisbane, Jackie Trad is Queensland’s Deputy Premier, Treasurer and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships.
Since the Palaszczuk Government’s election in 2015, more than 216,000 new jobs have been created and, in her role as Treasurer, Jackie is determined to see that number rise by investing in vital infrastructure to foster the continued growth of new and existing industries.
As part of the Palaszczuk Labor Government, Jackie has also championed and secured funding for the development of the now completed Gold Coast Light Rail - and as of last year, kicked off the construction of South-East Queensland's most vital infrastructure project, Cross River Rail. As Infrastructure and Planning Minister, Jackie also led the development of Queensland's first infrastructure plan in seven years and the most recent South East Queensland Regional Plan.
