Business Western Sydney proudly traces its roots way back to 1825 when the Sydney Chamber of Commerce was established as the first organisation of its kind in the fledgling colony. It gradually evolved into becoming the Sydney Business Chamber, and in 2012 the Western Sydney Business Chamber was founded to reflect the emergence of Western Sydney as a growing economic powerhouse.
Our first major campaign was advocating for the approval of Western Sydney International (Nancy Bird-Walton) Airport. In the early stage of the Aerotropolis debate we helped define the narrative by commissioning reports, hosting conferences and leading a group of business and community groups to successfully advocate the substantial economic, tourism and job creation benefits of the airport will deliver.
To assist in the design and construction of the airport, the Government's established Aerotropolis and Western City, managed by the Western City and Aerotropolis Authority, and Western Sydney Airport Co Limited (WSA Co). We continue lead this debate to ensure this once-in-a-century greenfield development is a world-leading centre of excellence embracing modern technology and cutting-edge innovation, from renewable utilities and walkable smart precincts.
