Far West

The Far West’s economy supports a significant proportion of NSW’s pastoral and mining activity. While the economic disruption caused by years of drought will be substantial, the NSW Government is fast-tracking recovery through significant investments in infrastructure, water security, digital connectivity and economic diversification priorities to strengthen local economies. These include water security and agricultural technology projects, freight link upgrades and skills investments, combining a strong focus on building community resilience to support the Far West’s engine and emerging industries.
