NSW Business Chamber’s survey of business conditions showed conditions in the New England North West region were the worst in the state. About 70% of businesses reported a drop in profits as revenues fell and costs rose.

This is clearly an unsustainable position for business in our region and it highlights the importance of good advocacy and good policies – which is where the Chamber comes in.

NSW Business Chamber has achieved a number of advocacy wins recently, from securing an extension to the instant asset write-off, training hubs on the Central Coast of NSW, a new employment services pilot on the Mid North Coast and successfully lobbying for a new Freight and Logistics Hub on the Riverina – to name but a few.

Over the course of 2019, the Chamber is ramping up advocacy for the New England North West, to ensure our region gets the infrastructure and services needed to achieve its full potential. 

To see how you can get involved in fighting for good policy in our region, please see details below regarding nominations to our Regional Advisory Council and get involved!
