NSW THE NATION’S NUMBER ONE ECONOMY AND GETTING STRONGER

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall today welcomed news that NSW has consolidated its position as the nation’s strongest performing economy and that it’s now pulling away from the other States and Territories.

 

He said the latest CommSec State of the States report confirmed that the NSW economy has continued to lead the country.

 

“Our State retained its ranking as the nation’s top performing economy for the fourth consecutive quarter and the report shows that we’re moving further ahead of the States and Territories ranked below us,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“When the government came to office four years ago the Premier promised to make NSW number one again – and that is exactly what has occurred.

 

“But this is just the start. The government and I will continue to work hard to grow the economy and to help create the jobs this we deserve and need.”

 

The CommSec report comes after recent official labour force data showed there were 11,300 jobs added in NSW in June – more than double the next highest State.

 

Mr Marshall said that the Government’s Rebuilding NSW plan will make NSW an even stronger economy, with $6 billion going towards new roads, rail, schools, hospitals and sporting and cultural institutions in rural and regional NSW.
