About Treasury


Treasury is a central policy agency. It is Treasury’s role to anticipate and analyse policy issues with a whole‑of‑economy perspective, understand government and stakeholder circumstances, and respond rapidly to changing events and directions.

At Treasury we provide sound economic analysis and informed and impactful policy advice on issues such as the economy, budget, taxation, the financial sector, foreign investment, structural policy, superannuation, small business, housing affordability and international economic policy.

We work with state and territory governments on key economic, business and social policy, and manage federal financial relations.

A further 16 agencies constitute our wider portfolio.
