The Continuing the: Productivity Conversation Green Paper identifies big and small measures that the NSW government can take in the short, medium and longer term.
Feedback on the draft recommendations has now closed. After considering your feedback, these recommendations will be further refined and presented to the NSW Government. They will become recommendations to support our state's ongoing prosperity and lay the foundations for growth in the years to come.

Topics explored in the Green Paper
We think there are ways to improve training and get more people of all ages into secure, skilled work.
Making teaching careers more rewarding, attracting more people to teaching and using data better will give our children the best start in life.
For us to be healthy and productive, the spaces that surround us need to be responsive to the ways we socialise, work and travel.
Regulation should support our health and safety, not get in the way of new ideas. Updated technologies offer opportunities to make regulation work better for all of us.
Water & Energy
Safe, efficient and affordable utilities are vital for homes and businesses across NSW. Planning for the future of energy and water requires consideration today.
Broad reforms are needed to deliver a new tax system which is fairer, more competitive, more effective and less complex.
NSW can get ahead of the demand and build the infrastructure we need to serve a growing and ageing population and address projected infrastructure pressures.
