The Business Sector Growth Plan has been created in close partnership between business leaders and the NSW Government. The NSW Innovation Council has led the development of this Plan in consultation with more than 200 business and community leaders in NSW.

The vision for 2020 is that the NSW economy will be more than 30% larger than it is today, driven by growth in highly skilled, high-value–added industries. The NSW industry base will be internationally recognised for its innovation, productivity, knowledge intensity and carbon efficiency.

The NSW economy in 2020 will be:

• Technologically advanced
• Innovative and creative
• Low carbon, and
• Globally competitive.

The NSW Business Sector Growth Plan incorporates the ideas raised by industry at the NSW Business Forum and responds to the opportunities and challenges identified in an analysis of how the economy will look in 2020 prepared by Access Economics, The NSW Economy in 2020—A Foresighting Study.
