“As a Government, we rely on the advice of our public service for all the key decisions we make, including economic policy and financial decisions. It needs to be accurate and timely, frank and fearless, and to tell us what we need to know – that’s why we need the best and brightest graduates in our state to join the public sector, to help us build a prosperous future for all South Australians.”

The Hon. Tom Koutsantonis MP
Treasurer of South Australia
