The ACT Government's economic survival and recovery measures have helped the Territory manage the first stages of the pandemic, and have kept many Canberrans working. The health system has been bolstered and support provided to households, local businesses and the community sector. The next stage of economic recovery will go further to ensure the ACT emerges from this once-in-a-century economic shock stronger and more resilient.
