The 2022-23 Budget has ambitious goals—to elevate, innovate and reinvigorate our economy, and make New South Wales the best state to work, live and raise a family, while we continue to safeguard the health and prosperity of the community.
Take a top-level view of the 2022-23 NSW Budget—a transformational plan of reform for New South Wales that will continue to unleash the great productive potential of the people of the State. This Budget includes a record $112.7 billion spend on infrastructure, as well as a broad spectrum of measures to support families—including $7.2 billion to boost household budgets, $3.8 billion to give children the best start to life, and $3.3 billion to support sustainability and the clean economy.
Regional New South Wales is home to some of our most beautiful sights and most vital industries. The 2022-23 NSW contains a wide range of measures to support our regional communities, particularly in the wake of significant challenges—including a historic drought, Black Summer bushfires, mice plague, devastating storms and floods, and COVID-19.
Western Sydney is the third-largest economy in Australia, after the Sydney and Melbourne CBDs. More than 2.2 million people call Western Sydney home. The 2022-23 NSW Budget contains investments to bring the vision for an ever-more liveable, workable and beautiful Greater Sydney to life, particularly in Western Sydney.
Women's Opportunity Statement
The Women’s Opportunity Statement is the first in an ongoing commitment to reforms that ensure there are real choices for women to play an equal role in NSW workplaces and the economy—choices that don’t require them to make impossible decisions about their health and wellbeing, their safety or their role as a parent or carer.
