Feature event: An exclusive webinar with demographer Bernard Salt

Why Western Sydney's future is brighter than ever

In this compelling presentation, demographer Bernard Salt argues that Western Sydney’s economy will surge in the post-COVID era. While the region will soon have an international airport, there’s much more, too. More Sydneysiders working from home – or close to home – will help support local businesses. The rise in demand for supply chain security will drive demand for logistics, warehousing and manufacturing.  And just as importantly, he believes we’ll also see a cultural shift, in which the people of Western Sydney see themselves as more integral to the greater Sydney region than ever before.
