NSW–India International Engagement Strategy
The NSW Government will focus its efforts in the following areas to grow our relationship with India across trade, investment, education and tourism:
- Collaborate to deliver world class infrastructure
- Export NSW capabilities to deliver smart cities in India
- Grow two-way tourism
- Increase skills and education exchanges with India
- Attract Indian investment into NSW, particularly in professional services, ICT and resources
- Grow NSW exports to India
- Facilitate the exchange of agriculture technology and expertise
- Grow partnerships with India.
The preparation of clear, short and achievable statements of government intent for each of our priority markets is an action under the NSW International Engagement Strategy (2013).
This strategy for engaging with India is a working document. It provided practical direction for the NSW Government across our trade, investment, resources, education, tourism, planning, cultural and infrastructure agencies.
The strategy will be regularly updated and reviewed in response to new opportunities and to support the growth in the NSW economy.
