Western Sydney’s prosperity potential

Shaping Future Cities

This report sets the context for Designing Western Sydney by introducing key sectors that will drive the region’s future prosperity.

Western Sydney’s prosperity potential

This paper provides a short summary of each of our Building the Lucky Country reports, and then connects each to the unique challenges facing Western Sydney – setting a series of focus questions.

While not yet a comprehensive set of imperatives facing Australia or Western Sydney, the Building the Lucky Country series provides a ready platform to generate discussions about how Western Sydney creates 200,000 new jobs by 2020:

  • Which sectors should the region focus on to deliver the greatest prosperity potential?
  • Where will Western Sydney’s future workers come from? And which initiatives should be embraced to best attract them?
  • How can government at all levels, and business, reduce the red tape that is holding back productivity?
  • How should new technologies be embraced, and how can disruptive threats be turned into opportunities?
