Gladys Berejiklian MP. This lunch is proudly sponsored by Optus Business.
The Premier will discuss the NSW boom and how trade will benefit the state.
The outlook for the state of NSW is strong. Business investment, public infrastructure and dwelling construction are all exhibiting strength, lifting construction activity and employment in the state to record levels. Service exports are also contributing strongly to economic growth, underpinned by overseas visitors and international student enrollments.
The NSW economy will continue to benefit from easy access to capital, a competitive Australian dollar, strong demand from Asia, above trend population growth, and an historically large infrastructure and residential construction pipeline. The key drivers of growth in the near-term are forecast to be overseas exports, dwelling investment, and public capital expenditure.
This will be the major multi-Chamber event in NSW this year. Give your business prominence through table sponsorship, meet executives from other business communities, and get to know diplomats from the countries represented at this significant event.
