Treasurer Matt Kean has announced the 2022-23 NSW Budget will be handed down on Tuesday, 21 June 2022.
Mr Kean said he looked forward to delivering his first Budget which comes as the NSW economy continues to rebound from challenges such as COVID-19 and recent floods.
“We know the past two years have been hard for the people of NSW and the Omicron wave brought new, unexpected challenges,” Mr Kean said.
“But NSW has shown its resilience: unemployment is at a record low of 3.7 per cent, consumer spending is growing strongly, and business confidence is well above its decade average.
“It’s now time to look ahead. The Budget will lay out our plans for the next 12 months and beyond to support NSW families and build a better future.”
Mr Kean said the NSW Government had to date committed over $2 billion towards the 2022 flood recovery.
“We also committed more than $46 billion towards health, economic and social support measures since the pandemic began, including our $2.8 billion Economic Recovery Strategy,” Mr Kean said.
“Our $110.4 billion infrastructure program has helped drive our recovery and kept people in jobs and we are committed to supporting business and the community as we deliver for the people of NSW.”
