Economic leadership

There’s nothing quite like being gazumped by the Prime Minister, but we have been!

Here I was ready to tell you all about today’s launch of the Property Council’s new website and the powerful new tools it offers members, with customised logins that put benefits in members' hands like never before.

Instead let me say simply that the brand new site is now live. It is a stunning platform from which to tell the industry’s story and an important part of our commitment to deliver more for members.  I invite you to surf the new site here. Please let us know your feedback.

On the much more pressing news of our new Prime Minister and his declaration that economic leadership is central to the needs of the nation, the Property Council wholeheartedly agrees.

Growing the economy and creating jobs must be at the heart of the Turnbull Government’s agenda.

Mr Abbott put Australia on the path to wide-ranging tax reform – an exercise long-overdue and vitally important to Australian living standards. This process must continue.

Malcolm Turnbull is set to be our most urbanist Prime Minister. He has a keen understanding of the productivity challenges of our cities and the need to manage growth in smart and sustainable ways.

We have worked closely with Mr Turnbull over many years, including during his time as Communications Minister and we look forward to continuing this relationship.

Finally, I hope you also enjoy this new look Property Australia. We look forward to providing you with the highest quality content in this engaging new format.
