NSW: A state transformed

Published 23rd March, 2018

Since 2011, our government has transformed NSW – unleashing economic growth, delivering better services and investing in infrastructure. But we are committed to doing more. 

I am honoured to serve and represent all 7.5 million people of New South Wales. Our state has the strongest economy in the nation, and we are on track for a record surplus. This has not happened by accident; it has taken six years of hard work with important decisions. This great position allows us to invest billions of dollars back into our cities and regional areas, and improve the services that meet people’s needs and make it easier to work and enjoy life.

By listening to people across NSW, we are delivering where it is needed most. We have built new roads and hospitals, announced funding for around 1100 new classrooms and improved transport services, investing heavily in regional areas because we want everyone to receive their fair share of our state's success. The number of teachers, police and nurses continues to rise. We are focused on delivery, and that informs everything that we do in this state.

As we mark the second year since the March 2015 election, we have delivered on more than 200 of our election commitments.

Whether it be through the major developments such as the completion of a new hospital or local projects such as building a ramp at a community centre to improve accessibility, we have achieved outcomes that have made a real difference to people’s lives.

We have more to do, but it is our privilege to work for the NSW community.

I am proud to lead a government that is working hard for the people of NSW, that treats our communities with respect and that is creating opportunity for all.

Since 2011, working with communities and businesses, our government has transformed NSW, unleashed economic growth, created more than 445,000 jobs, and laid strong foundations for future generations with the biggest infrastructure program in our nation’s history.

Today, the NSW economy is the powerhouse of Australia and a standout by global standards. We have imposed financial discipline and made the necessary decisions to build the strongest state budget on record, because we know that strong economic management is what helps families and businesses get ahead.

Every decision we make is about creating more jobs in all parts of our state, delivering a better quality of life, driving down the cost of living, and giving the people of NSW the choices and opportunities they deserve to reach their potential.

Our $80 billion infrastructure pipeline is putting in place the world-class hospitals, schools, roads and rail lines that our communities need, and setting NSW up for decades to come. Not only is this improving services and easing congestion – it is also giving businesses from across Australia and all over the world the confidence to invest. At the same time, our record investment in education and skills means that everyone in NSW has the opportunity to get a great job in a growing industry.

We are determined to make sure that every community shares in the success of NSW – whether by investing in the critical services that our communities rely on, cutting taxes to help businesses grow, easing cost-of-living pressures, or providing care and support for those who need it most. We recognise the role that government plays in so many people’s lives, which is why we have championed customer service with initiatives like Service NSW and the Opal Card, and put more than 15,000 extra teachers, nurses, midwives, doctors, paramedics, police and firefighters on the front line.

Our state is thriving like never before. But we know the job is not done. We want NSW to be not just the best place in Australia, but the best place in the world in which to live, work and raise a family – where each generation hands down greater opportunity to the next.

My government and I will be working harder than ever to take NSW to the next level in the years to come, building on the incredible progress we have made together.

The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP

Our strong economic management is helping people get ahead

Since 2011, the NSW Government’s economic management has created more than 445,000 jobs, seen NSW record the lowest unemployment rate of any state in the country for 32 consecutive months and helped maintain our important triple-A credit rating.

Our economic performance is the foundation on which we are delivering our vision for NSW – from the massive infrastructure investment connecting and improving our communities, to initiatives that relieve cost-of-living pressures, and innovations improving services for the people of NSW.

We are delivering major metropolitan and local infrastructure

This is delivering easier commutes, more connected communities, and better health and education facilities.

Since 2011, the NSW Government has made it a priority to reduce cost-of-living pressures, help people get ahead and provide assistance to those who need it most.

We understand that many NSW residents are concerned about the cost of essential products and services, so we have delivered a range of initiatives to help people reduce their everyday expenses, and help first homebuyers secure the keys to their first home.

We are delivering world-class services that put customers first

The NSW Government puts customer service at the centre of everything we do. Since 2011, we have improved the way our government delivers services by adopting new approaches and harnessing cutting-edge technology to make life easier for people in NSW.

We believe that government services should be quick, easy to access and responsive, and be delivered to a standard that rivals the best of the private sector.
