Business Western Sydney

Advocacy Services

Business Western Sydney provides a loud and clear voice for Western Sydney to all levels of government, championing innovative public and economic policies that will secure the region's future prosperity.

By 2030, over one million new people are expected to call Greater Western Sydney home. It will be where 44% of Sydney's residents, 9% of Australia's total population lives. It will deliver $104 billion to the economy and represent 8% of Australia's total gross domestic product; a figure that would put Western Sydney in the top 60 economies in the world if it was a stand-alone country. It is a land of unprecedented transformation and opportunity. 

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed challenges across the country. For Australia to bounce back quickly, it needs a strong Western Sydney to generate jobs and stimulate economic activity. 

We know how to drive change, how to influence and how to lead the policy agenda. We give Western Sydney a powerful voice and use it to amplify the campaigns that will deliver new jobs and unlock more green spaces. We are a voice for building more infrastructure and better educational, housing, arts and cultural facilities.

there has never been a more important time for innovative thinking supported by strong public policy. Legacy precincts are being transformed into world-class facilities and booming residential development, and once-in-a-century mega projects like Western Sydney Airport and its supporting infrastructure network, are now underway. 

Our mission is simple: we want Western Sydney to be the best place in Australia to live, work and invest.
