Premier's Priorities

The Premier's Priorities represent the NSW Government's commitment to making a significant difference to enhance the quality of life of the people of NSW. The key policy priorities are:

  • a strong economy
  • highest quality education
  • well connected communities with quality local environments
  • putting customers at the centre of everything we do
  • breaking cycles of disadvantage.

Strategic plans

NSW Government agencies have strategic plans designed to help achieve the Premier's Priorities. Links to these plans are listed below.


NSW Circular Economy Innovation Network

The NSW Circular Economy Innovation Network  aims to contribute to the development of a circular economy – where waste is valued as a resource – by fostering a more sustainable approach to the design of goods and services, use of resources and management of waste. The network is an initiative of the NSW Government with UNSW Sydney appointed as host.

NSW Defence Innovation Network

The Defence Innovation Network (DIN) is an association of seven leading universities in NSW. The purpose of the DIN is to bring together NSW industry, universities, state government and DST Group to address Australia’s defence needs. The DIN also supports NSW business innovation in the global defence market by harnessing world-class research capabilities available within NSW universities.

NSW Smart Sensing Network

The NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) was established in July 2016 with funding from the NSW Government through the Office of the Chief Scientist & Engineer. It was founded on the premise that the economy and people of NSW face key challenges in energy, resources, manufacturing, the environment, transport, agriculture, space and health that cutting-edge research in smart sensing could play a critical role in solving.
