Economics impacts of new infrastructure initiatives for NSW
Deloitte Access Economics was asked by the NSW Government to model the economic impacts of new infrastructure and other initiatives proposed by Rebuilding NSW.
This plan involves the long-term, partial lease of 49% of the State’s electricity network assets, with funds raised to be reinvested in new transport and water infrastructure, schools, hospitals and sporting and cultural facilities.
The report finds that:
- Rebuilding NSW will increase NSW’s Gross State Product (GSP) by $30.9 billion by 2035-36 (measured in 2013 prices) – a real increase of 3.6% over the level of GSP that would occur without the plan
- The total increase in GSP over the period to 2035-36 is estimated to be almost $300 billion (measured in 2013 prices) – roughly equivalent to 60% of current GSP.
