SYDNEY – THE PLACE FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Our economy is strong and diverse, infrastructure is reliable and the lifestyle is second to none. What better choice for your business?
Sydney isn’t just a thriving commercial centre, it’s also a global city. The capital of the State of New South Wales (NSW), Sydney is ideally positioned as the gateway to Australia and the Asia Pacific.
We are well educated – 57 per cent of our workforce is tertiary educated. That’s the highest of all Australian states.
NSW’s economy is larger than that of Hong Kong SAR, Malaysia or Singapore and accounts for about one third of Australia’s gross domestic product. And the State is AAA-rated by Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s.
The city offers a more cost competitive office location than other major global business centres. Already, more than 600 multinational companies have chosen Sydney as their regional headquarters, benefitting from the city’s well-educated, multilingual workforce.
We have an open and efficient regulatory environment which makes it easy to do business.
