Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources
The Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources was established by the Victorian Government on 1 January 2015.
The government created the department to bring together many of the key functions that drive economic development and job creation across Victoria. These include transport and ports, investment attraction and facilitation, trade, innovation, regional development and small business, together with key services to sectors such as agriculture, the creative industries, resources and tourism.
The department supports nine ministers, spans 14 portfolios and operates in more than 80 locations in Victoria and 22 offices around the world.
As of 1 July 2016, the Energy portfolio has moved to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. This website will be progressively updated to reflect this change.
