The State’s newest Government Department opened its doors on Friday (1 April), bringing together enterprise and trade, tourism and hospitality, arts and culture, sport and Western Sydney all under the one cluster.

Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade, Stuart Ayres said bringing together the Agencies and groups under the new the Department of Enterprise, Investment and Trade (DEIT) would help drive NSW’s post-COVID economic transformation and create sustainable jobs of the future.

Secretary of DEIT, Amy Brown said the cluster also had a mandate to ensure liveability was a key focus for prosperity.

“The quality of our neighbourhoods, workplaces and cities has a significant factor on our economic development and our ability to attract talented workers, students and innovative companies to NSW,” Ms Brown (pictured) said.

“The new Department will allow for more cohesive inter-Agency planning and decision making, allowing us to build on our reputation as the number one place for people across the world to invest, live, visit, study, grow and play,” she said.

Mr Ayres said DEIT reinforced the State’s commitment to economic development, job creation, innovation, new technologies and liveability.

“We are positioning NSW as the best place in the world to do business − where innovation, trade, tourism, sport and culture work together to drive the dream combination of economic strength and vibrant lifestyle,” he said.

“We want to help NSW businesses find new markets and help drive collaborative partnerships between Government and non-Government organisations to fuel economic growth, and make Western Sydney an economic powerhouse.

“This is also about ensuring we have the world’s best arts and cultural institutions, sporting facilities and events to create thriving communities and attract tourists alike.”
