The State of NSW will have presence in South America from 2020

Premier Gladys Berejiklian launched Global NSW on 5/12/2019 – a strategy to unlock international investment into NSW to keep our State as the nation’s economic powerhouse. “As Premier, I have worked hard to bring international investment into NSW, helping to secure 17 MOUs into our Western Sydney Aerotropolis,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Our new strategy takes this work to the next level. This is about expanding our key markets around the world and ensuring we take advantage of the incredible economic opportunities on our doorstep.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade John Barilaro said under the strategy the number of trade and investment offices located overseas will grow from 11 to 21. “NSW has successfully marketed itself globally as a ‘bucket list’ tourism destination for decades and it’s time to take that up a notch and highlight our State as this region’s centre of excellence for business, industry and innovation,” Mr Barilaro said.
The CEO of ALABC Mr. Marcelo Salas, attended a lunch event organised by the British Chamber of Commerce in Sydney, where the Treasurer of NSW The Hon Dominic Perrottet MP said:  “ a key part of ensuring the State’s economic future was making more of expanding markets in China, South-East Asia and India, as well as diversifying our exports in established markets like Japan, the US and Europe”.

Treasurer Perrottet mentioned that “ the small size of NSW’s international network means we don’t have a presence in key markets’’.

NSW has no presence in South America. As part of the strategy, revamping the NSW trade and investment network will include the appointments of an Agent General in London and five Senior NSW Commissioners in Mumbai, New York, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.  The hub in New York – for the Americas, with have spokes in San Francisco, Washington, D.C, Santiago (Chile), and Toronto.


“NSW has always been a leader, not a follower, and as part of this Strategy we will target growth in sectors such as medtech, cybersecurity, space, advanced manufacturing, quantum computing and blockchain,” Mr Perrottet said.
