Strengthening Sydney's local economy

Our aim is to strengthen Sydney's competitive economic position. We promote opportunities for businesses to improve productivity and capacity.

Working with other government agencies, we promote local economies to drive footfall, connect businesses to opportunities, grow skills and capacity, and invest to stimulate economic development.

Our economic development strategy outlines a 10-year plan to grow Sydney's economy. The strategy identifies certain sectors that require special focus, including retail, tourism, creative and digital, tech startups, international education, global business engagement, night-time economy, green economy and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment and enterprise.
