Priorities to improve quality of life in NSW
The new priorities will deliver great opportunities and quality of life for all NSW citizens.
Key priorities of the NSW Government
- A strong economy, quality jobs and job security for workers of today and tomorrow.
- Highest quality education no matter where you live or what your circumstances may be.
- Well-connected communities with quality local environments.
- Making government work better for you by putting the customer at the centre of everything we do.
- Breaking the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage by fixing problems that have been in the too-hard basket for too long.
Technology and data upgrades will improve the quality and level of government services available, including online transactions and cost of living. Schools, hospitals and social services will be re-designed to work better for each citizen.
More work will be done to reduce the rate of suicide, provide permanency for all children in out-of-home care, ensure social housing tenants have a pathway to independence, tackle indigenous disadvantage, and reduce rates of reoffending and the prison population.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the government needs to ensure that NSW continues to be an attractive location to invest, which will in turn enhance the capacity to develop new industries and drive jobs growth.
“Jobs are fundamental. We will prioritise higher education and skills to ensure we have a workforce that is able to adapt to the needs of Australia and the world,” Ms Berejiklian said.
Deputy Premier John Barilaro said the government knows many of our regional and rural communities are doing it tough.
“Providing water security and better connecting our communities will be key priorities,” Mr Barilaro said.
“We have an opportunity to unlock enormous economic potential with better connections between the regions and Sydney and, crucially, from region to region.”
