Formed in April 2011, NSW Trade & Investment has three operational divisions delivering to our industries:
A single central division provides departmental services and coordination across a wide range of operational and strategic functions:
Also, the Chief Audit Executive, Office of Coal Seam Gas and the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer report directly to the Director General of NSW Trade & Investment.
There are nine clusters of government organisations in NSW each led by a principal department. NSW Trade & Investment leads the Trade and Investment cluster which contains a number of entities which operate external to the framework of the principal department such as Cultural Institutions and State Owned Corporations.
The first NSW Trade & Investment Strategic Plan sets the overarching direction of the department for the next four years. It articulates our vision and values, defines our key results, the intended outcomes, and the strategies we will put in place to achieve those outcomes.
For each result area, the plan defines our intended outcomes and strategies, and the key performance indicators against which we will assess our success over the coming years.
NSW 2021 – A Plan to Make NSW Number One and the 2012-13 State Budget provide the framework for the NSW Trade & Investment Strategic Plan 2012-2015. These two documents jointly lay out the Government’s priorities for the next ten years and the resources that underpin these priorities.
The NSW Trade & Investment Strategic Plan reflects our department’s responsibilities under NSW 2021 which are to grow the NSW economy.
