This year's Budget is focused on building on the new found strength of the Victorian economy to deliver the things that matter most to Victorians: hospitals, schools, jobs and transport to protect our quality of life.

The Budget funds our plans, projects and promises - because getting things done means concrete delivery, not dithering and delay.

We're building the projects our state needs and creating thousands of jobs.

We're supporting businesses to grow and making sure Victorians get the skills they need.

The Budget sets aside $500 million to take action on family violence - our number one law and order issue.

It will deliver more new schools than ever before.

It will cut waiting times for emergency departments and elective surgeries.

It funds the road and rail projects we need to get to work and home on time.

And it recognises regional Victoria as key to our state's economic strength.

With this Budget, regional cities can start to rival Melbourne in the race for new jobs, visitors and businesses - and that's a good thing.

Make no mistake: our economy is strong.

Companies who want to invest in Victoria and create new jobs now know they have a government that's on their side and the Victorian economy has a new-found confidence.

They are just some of the reasons why our state is growing faster than any other.

It's our job to manage this growth, and make sure no Victorian misses out on the things that really matter.

It will take time and effort, but I'm proud to say that we're getting it done.
