Australia is in the midst of a challenge unlike any other in living memory. This may seem like a strange time to talk about innovation – but it is exactly these conditions that provide the opportunity to adapt, adjust and reform. The Committee has launched a major report that takes stock of the challenge and provide wide-ranging recommendations to support Sydney and Australia’s emergence as an economically strong, fair and healthy society bursting with opportunity and world-changing ideas.
The report presents recommendations across five areas for reform, including invest government dollars in important R&D efforts; making it easy to start new companies and create good jobs; making Sydney’s underlying economic systems more efficient; making it easy for talented people to come and stay in Sydney and to give Sydneysiders the skills they need to be successful.
