The Strategy Group in the Prime Minister’s Office was set up in July 2015 to drive whole-of-government strategic planning by identifying key priorities and emerging issues over the medium to long-term. It partners public agencies to strengthen whole-of-government efforts on key cross-cutting issues, such as population and climate change. The Strategy Group expanded in August 2016 to include the National Population and Talent Division (NPTD) and National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS).
Strategy Group leads and organises the Public Service to develop and implement the Government’s strategic priorities.
Strategy Group is led by the Head of Civil Service/Permanent Secretary (Strategy) and a Deputy Secretary.
