Mission and vision

The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) works to improve the lives and prosperity of all Victorians.

Our vision

A productive, competitive and sustainable Victorian economy that contributes to a prosperous and inclusive society.

Our mission

The mission of the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) is to get our economy and society working together for  the benefit of all Victorians – by creating more jobs for more people, connecting people and businesses, and maintaining Victoria's envied reputation for liveability now, and for the future.

This means:

  • More jobs for more people – we are creating and maintaining jobs so more people have meaningful work that is safe and secure. We do this by supporting businesses and workers, developing and growing our future industries, attracting investment to our regions and supporting industries in transition. We also create jobs by leveraging our natural assets, including fostering our visitor economy, creativity and innovation. 
  • Making connections – we are connecting Victorians to work, family and recreation. We are connecting businesses to each other and to their customers. We do this by growing our transport services, making them more reliable and accessible and building new infrastructure, across Melbourne and our regions, and across all transport modes. We also connect Victoria to the world by attracting investment and talent, and helping Victorian businesses trade into global markets. 
  • Maintaining Victoria's liveability – we are helping to create places, towns and cities that are accessible, well connected, culturally rich, diverse, resilient and safe. We do this for all Victorians.
