Prime Minister Scott Morrison will use a speech in Brisbane on 29 January to commit the Coalition to creating an additional 1.25 million jobs over five years if it wins the 2019 federal election. He will note that the Coalition has created more than 1.2 million jobs since it won the 2013 election. Morrison will also indicate that his government will aim to clear Australia’s net debt within a decade. It currently stands at $351.9bn, or 18.2 per cent of GDP. The mid-year Budget update had forecast that net debt will fall to 1.5 per cent of GDP in 2028-29.
