The NSW Government continue to deliver a strong economy to provide opportunities for NSW families and small businesses to get ahead.

Williams said the NSW Government is committed to easing the cost of living for multicultural families, improving frontline services and creating more local jobs.

“We are delivering on this promise. In the month of May alone, we hired more police, provided training for pharmacists in palliative care and saw a surge in enrolments in public schools,” Mr Williams said.

“The strong financial management of the NSW Government allows us to invest more in the community to allow new arrivals and migrants to prosper in our State.”

Recent key milestones for the NSW Government include:

  • A record-breaking 500,000 new jobs have been created since April 2011, being driven by female participation and an increase of jobs in rural and regional areas.
  • The $4.2 billion announced in last year’s Budget for major school building projects will fund 120 new and upgraded schools, creating 32,000 more student places, or 1500 new classrooms to cater for 8500 new enrolments every year.
  • The NSW Government is investing $4.9 billion for the renewal of Western Sydney’s hospitals, including $1 billion for Westmead, $1 billion for Nepean and $700 million for Blacktown.
  • More than 13,000 families have been able to purchase a new home under the NSW Government First Home Buyers Assistance Scheme.
  • Strengthened Australia’s position as an international leader in cancer research by providing a $41 million boost to expand cancer research.
  • Committed $100 million to secure strategic open green space while also setting aside an extra $20 million to build more than 200 new or upgraded playgrounds that are more inclusive and engaging.
