Growing NSW’s first economy
Growing NSW’s first economy is the NSW Government’s framework to promote the economic prosperity of Aboriginal people and communities in
Aboriginal economic prosperity is a key element of OCHRE, the NSW Government’s plan for Aboriginal affairs.
Growing NSW’s first economy is not a stand-alone policy. It does not prescribe specific programs or initiatives for Aboriginal people. Its
approach is different.
Growing NSW’s first economy integrates Aboriginal economic participation into NSW Government priorities which focus on:
- Jobs and employment
- Education and skills
- Economic agency
