Indigenous, social and local participation targets

Back

Project Description

The Australian and NSW Governments will work to adopt Indigenous, social and local employment and procurement targets in construction projects, including a 2.4 per cent indigenous employment target and a 3 per cent Indigenous procurement target for construction projects in the district. Details on the timing for introduction of these targets will be included in the City Deal Implementation Plan.

The NSW Government will support the introduction of these targets by increasing funding for apprenticeships and traineeships in Western Sydney, and for pre-vocational qualifications.
