South Australia’s Implementation Plan includes a commitment from the government to address priority reforms and sets out our state’s plan for achieving and addressing the socio-economic targets embedded in the Closing the Gap Agreement to ensure the lives of Aboriginal people in South Australia can improve in all cultural, social and economic aspects.

Containing more than 200 government agency actions, the plan has a focus on delivering positive outcomes in the areas of employment and business, improving the quality of government services, and designing measures that will strengthen the capability of Aboriginal corporations and organisations.

Premier Steven Marshall was joined by representatives from the South Australian Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation Network (SAACCON), including Executive Member, Chris Larkin, Lead Convenor, Scott Wilson, and Co-Convenor, Tina Quitadamo to formally sign and launch the plan.
