Event overview

The State of the State address provides senior leaders from across industries, with your colleagues and guests, to hear directly from the Premier on how he plans to continue the Government's mandate of Rebuilding New South Wales.

The Premier will set out the Government's plans to keep New South Wales working, to maintain the nation's strongest economy, and priorities in relation to:

  • Strategies for NSW to maintain the lead as the premier state of investment and growth;
  • Implementation of second term priorities, and investment in major projects; and
  • Maintaining our State's competitiveness due to changes in regional and global economies.

As an independent national organisation, CEDA hosts State of the State addresses across the country each year. We look forward to welcoming you at this important event, providing you with a first-hand opportunity to learn more about the priorities of the elected NSW Government.
