What is growth state?

Growth state is a partnership between the South Australian Government and industry to accelerate our economy through business expansion and innovation.

Growth State aims to achieve an increase in Gross State Product (GSP) to an average annual rate of 3% per annum.

Priority sectors

Nine priority sectors have been identified with substantial prospects for growth to achieve this target. These include:

  • defence
  • space
  • hi-tech
  • food, wine and agribusiness
  • international education
  • tourism
  • energy and mining
  • health and medical industries
  • creative industries.

Sustainable growth will come from a coordinated government and industry commitment to shared goals and targets, collaboration and co-investment to drive practical actions.

Growth state will have a focus on export areas across four streams of action – trade and investment, skills and innovation, infrastructure, and land, water and the environment.
