The NSW Department of Industry is leading roadshows to China, Malaysia and Hong Kong in 2017 to promote the business and investor migration opportunities and lifestyle benefits offered by NSW.

Recent improvements to the NSW migration program, including faster processing times, make it even easier for migrants to set up a business or invest and migrate to NSW.

The roadshows will showcase the NSW Migration program, promote the many benefits of living in NSW, and establish and strengthen relationships with key migration agents, fund managers, financial organisations and other local migration stakeholders.

Invitation to participate

Calls for expressions of interest

The roadshows follow the success of roadshow events in May 2016 and aim to:

  • increase awareness of the state’s welcoming business environment by showcasing Sydney and NSW to Chinese key migration industry stakeholders and business, entrepreneur and investor migrants, and
  • present on the NSW business and investor migration program, including our straightforward process for nominating potential migrants.

The roadshows will offer the migration industry and other influencers the opportunity to collaborate with the NSW Department of Industry by:

  • NSW-hosted events (Malaysia and Hong Kong only), where you can attend as a participant and hear about the NSW business and investor migration program including our faster processing times and recent improvements, and/or
  • industry-hosted meetings or events (all cities), where you can organise and host your event with a departmental representative.

Migration agents and interested stakeholders are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to either attend a NSW-hosted event or organise an industry-hosted meeting or event with a departmental representative.

Dates and format of the roadshow are in the table below.
