Kindly Hosted by NAB

Sydney’s GDP growth slowed in 2017-18 to 3.1 per cent. This follows three years of very high growth. While growth in the Sydney economy weakened in 2017-18 Sydney still contributed 26.3 per cent of all GDP growth in 2017-18. Almost 40 per cent of the economic growth was focused along the Global Economic Corridor from the Sydney CBD to Macquarie Park.

To discuss the findings of this report, and the implications for Sydney, we hope you can join us to hear from the author of the report, Terry Rawnsley – National Leader of Economic & Social Analysis for SGS Economics and Planning, followed by a discussion with a panel of experts including:

Terry Rawnsley | National Leader, Economic and Social Analysis, SGS Economics and Planning
Kaixin Owyong | Economist, Markets, National Australia Bank
Professor Amir Mahmood | Dean, School of Business, Western Sydney University
Gabriel Metcalf | CEO, Committee for Sydney (facilitator)

The Committee would like to thank NAB for generously hosting this event.
