FROM THE PRESIDENT Welcome to the official Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and Industry CHAMBER NEWS. The transformation of Liverpool into a major

regional city for South West Sydney is becoming increasingly more evident as cranes dominate the Liverpool CBD landscape. Within two years there will be an additional 2000 residents in the Liverpool CBD alone. By mid 2030 one in every 2 residents in Sydney will live in Sydney’s West. I have been a member of The Western Sydney Airport Alliance since it’s conception and am pleased to see our efforts drive forward the development of a Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek. The members of the Alliance have always believed that a major employment catalyst is needed in Western Sydney to increase the number of job opportunities and improve the work-life balance of the regions two million residents. The need for a strong voice for the Liverpool business community has never been more important and we have been making changes to accommodate the new demands placed on our Chamber. We will be increasing the Executive to eleven Board members to enable greater member participation to better serve our business community. We are strengthening our partnerships with government at all levels. We are growing the Chamber with concerted efforts to increase our visibility within the business community. This year we have already seen our membership increase at unprecedented rates, as more and more businesses realise that Liverpool needs a united voice to drive the infrastructure developments so needed to ensure maximum benefits to business in Liverpool. The Liverpool Chamber of Commerce & Industry provides opportunities



The Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan As Liverpool transforms to accommodate the “Liverpool WestAirport” and our population grows from 2 million to 3 million in the next 20 years. WILLWE HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE to support our businesses?
