Australian Government coat of arms

Prime Minister of Australia

The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP


21 October 2016

  • As we were just saying, what Mike and I have signed today – and we’re here of course with our Ministers – what we’ve signed today is an important, really a historic step in the way the federal government works with state and, indeed, with local governments. The federal government has always been an investor in infrastructure, in cities. But historically, there has been very little cooperation. The levels of government have often been passing each other like ships in the night, without sufficient communication and collaboration.

  • Well thank you very much Glen it is great to be with you, Lucy and I thrilled to be here with so many friends. It’s good to see Craig Laundy here, my colleague and it’s good to see Arthur Sinodinos the Cabinet Secretary and Elizabeth and also of course to see Wayne Swan the former Treasurer and Deputy Prime Minister.

  • The Australian and New South Wales governments have committed to a generational deal to deliver almost 100,000 jobs, more housing and better transport for outer Western Sydney in the first City Deal for New South Wales – the nation’s largest ever planning and investment partnership.

  • GRANT GOLDMAN: It is the prime concern of any politician or leader in this country, to create jobs which actually creates wealth and gives us a better economy, it’s pretty simple.
