The Property Council of Australia (SA Division) has today launched its pre-election log of claims, titled "ThreeP's: People, Productivity and Place".
The recommendations and actions under these broad policy umbrellas will be critical to ensuring South Australia is the best place in the nation to live, work and invest.
Executive Director of the South Australian Division, Nathan Paine says the ThreeP's Report provides a policy platform that seeks to build upon our State's existing strengths and deliver a prosperous future for all South Australians.
"The property sector is one of the most important sectors in the state economy; representing about 17 per cent of Gross State Product (GSP), employing about 20 per cent of all South Australians and paying over $6 million in salaries to employees working in the industry", Mr Paine says.
"The property sector shapes the physical world we live in, and provides the foundations of the intellectual and social world we create for ourselves.
"It builds and reshapes our cities to meet our changing community needs and it strives to meet public expectations of a seamless nexus of practicality and beauty in the built environment.
"The ThreeP's Report identifies People, Productivity and Place as crucial themes that will drive further growth and prosperity. This document challenges all political parties to acknowledge the importance of these policy areas and commit to necessary reforms.
"This report presents a wide range of recommendations and actions needed to take South Australia the next step towards a bright and prosperous future.
"There is no doubt that, as a state, we have come a long way, through highs and lows but there are more opportunities we can grab to make South Australia the best it can be.
"Our recommendations are sensible, realistic and critical to ensuring the best outcome for all South Australians.
"The ThreeP's Report builds connections between People, Productivity and Place and is consequently a pivotal document in the lead up to the state election."
