Message from the President
The South Australian arm of the Property Council of Australia and the business activities of the membership represent a significant part of the state’s economy.
Steve Maras – South Australian President (Managing Director, Maras Group)
The Property Council’s mission is to champion a strong property industry.
Our members’ activities contribute up to 10 per cent of gross state product; 16 per cent of total state government revenue; and account for 12 per cent of the state workforce.
In the SA economy, the property industry is the largest private sector employer in the state. Overall, it is the third-largest private industry sector by economic output. Investment in property also represents the major assets of individuals, families and business through direct ownership, superannuation funds, savings and investments.
The Property Council of Australia’s vision for South Australia is a thriving, modern economy supporting prosperity, jobs and strong communities. Property represents our physical foundation—it’s where we live and where we do business through shops, offices, industrial precincts, hotels and public buildings, as well as places for our creative and recreational pursuits that add so much to our quality of life.
In supporting these industries, the Property Council of Australia is a strong voice to ensure certainty for investment in South Australia’s future prosperity.
