About this event

The Government is strongly committed to the Western Sydney region, where a new airport will be a major generator of economic activity—providing employment opportunities closer to where people in Western Sydney live. Over 30,000 jobs could be generated directly by the airport's operation by 2060, and indirect employment around the airport site could contribute an additional 30,000 jobs.
