The NSW Productivity Commission has developed ideas to make NSW a better place to live, work and invest.

A bright future for NSW depends on the reforms we make today. The Continuing the Productivity Conversation Green Paper contains suggestions for productivity-enhancing reforms in consultation with community, industry bodies, representative organisations and not-for-profits.

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

Skills

Skills

We think there are ways to improve training and get more people of all ages into secure, skilled work.

Schools

Schools

Making teaching careers more rewarding, attracting more people to teaching and using data better will give our children the best start in life.

Planning

Planning

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

Regulation

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

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.

Taxation

Taxation

Broad reforms are needed to deliver a new tax system which is fairer, more competitive, more effective and less complex.

Infrastructure

Infrastructure

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.
