New South Wales is the engine room of the Australian economy and Sydney is a great and growing global city. We stand ready to benefit from the opportunities population growth provides – jobs, the establishment of new and innovative industries, urban renewal as well as the scope to attract the cream of talent from around the world.
This State and its people have long benefited from the economic and social impacts of population growth and we need to embrace the challenge of how to better manage the growing pains. The choice is not between growth or no growth - the real choice is between planned and unplanned growth.
The Property Council has a Six Step Plan that will further improve New South Wales’ prosperity, affordability and liveability as we plan for our State’s long-term future.
