The 2021-22 NSW Budget sustains the NSW Government’s support for our regions. Regional NSW is an economic powerhouse and a key component of the state’s economic success. It is home to a third of NSW’s population and produces around one fifth ($125 billion) of Gross State Product.

Regional communities have proved to be resilient in the face of drought, bushfires, COVID-19, flooding, and mouse plague. The NSW Government has supported this resilience with close to $10 billion of natural disaster support and recovery funding.

The NSW also Government remains committed to supporting our engine room industries of agriculture & forestry, fisheries, manufacturing, resources, and services sectors to meet of the recent challenges, recover quickly and return to growth. Our forward-looking focus is on helping regional economies further specialise in new industries and adopt innovative practices.
