Event overview

Western Sydney represents the fastest growing region in the country, requiring infrastructure investment to meet the challenges of continued population growth and provide economic opportunities.

As Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure, the Hon. Paul Fletcher MP lists the Western Sydney Airport as a key portfolio responsibility, underscoring its status as one of the nation’s most ambitious infrastructure projects.

The construction of the proposed Western Sydney Airport will generate $1.9 billion for the local economy. Once operational the proposed airport will bring an estimated 9,000 jobs to Western Sydney by 2030 and 60,000 in the long term.  

With the completion of the Environmental Impact Statement and project milestones to be met in 2017, CEDA is delighted to welcome Minister Fletcher for a keynote ministerial address to examine Western Sydney Infrastructure priorities.

This event will examine:

  • Planning, progress, and milestones towards developing the Western Sydney Airport;
  • Enhancing connectivity through Western Sydney; and
  • Enabling economic and social opportunities presented by investment in Western Sydney urban infrastructure.
