Business Council of Australia Chief Executive Jennifer Westacott AO says Western Sydney is a “frontier economy”.
“If you think about what’s a frontier economy, it’s an economy that’s at the cutting edge of technology … creating new value … creating new opportunities … using existing strengths and going to new adjacencies and scaling those up,” Ms Westacott said at the Strong Australia Western Sydney: Frontier Economy Forum.
“It’s the place where you’re thinking 20 years, 30 years into the future.
“That’s Western Sydney.”
Ms Westacott said most people don’t know Western Sydney is the third largest economy in Australia.
“Western Sydney is a frontier economy that will push Australia to the frontier.”
