A forward-focused economy

It’s not enough to be the lucky country – we have to be smart as well.

Kylea has committed to working towards:

  • An actionable and measurable plan which maps the decarbonisation of the Australian economy and prioritises reskilling, and greater support for tertiary education skills development; fosters a strong, diversified economy powered by well-educated and highly trained young Australians.
  • Greater federal investment in high growth, innovative green industries across our North Sydney community, to enable economic growth as we transition to a net zero carbon economy.
  • The development of a clean R&D and manufacturing high-tech corridor from North Sydney to Macquarie Park with greater investment in R&D and start-up incentives and support.
  • Prioritising targeted skilled migration to drive productivity, innovation and economic growth.
  • A focus on modernising industry which incentivises the production of green products (such as steel, green aluminium and green hydrogen) and provides a transition fund to support communities.
  • Greater support for small business driven by a sustainable recovery plan from COVID-19 with clear planning beyond the next election.

So far, North Sydney has achieved:

  • More protections for small- to medium-sized businesses within IR legislation. North Sydney was the only crossbench seat to secure an amendment to the Secure Jobs, Better Pay Bill which strengthens the representation by small to medium size construction companies.
  • Greater visibility of the work of local enterprises.

Next steps:

  • Advocate for more holistic tax reform, taking pressure off personal income and broadening the tax base including adequate review of PRRT.
  • Continue to push for government investment in future focused industries whilst advocating for articulated transition plans for receding industries.
