Regional NSW has highest number of new jobs in Aus

REGIONAL NSW was responsible for the highest number of new jobs than any other regional area in Australia, with 70,000 jobs created, over the past year.

The latest ABS figures show that of the total growth in regional areas across Australia, regional NSW is responsible for over 65%, Minister for Regional Development John Barilaro said.

"This is further evidence that our investment in regional NSW is driving business confidence, creating more opportunities and delivering new jobs for regional communities," Mr Barilaro said.

"The NSW Government is investing close to $9 billion in infrastructure projects across regional and rural NSW, building roads, hospitals, schools and tourism facilities."

Regional NSW has also recorded the largest decrease in the unemployment rate of all regions, falling from 7.5% to 6.1% over the same period.
