NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian joined Atlassian founder Scott Farquhar at the UTS Proto-Space to announce plans for an inner Sydney innovation precinct that will stretch across the upgraded Central Station, UTS, University of Sydney, RPA Hospital and Australia Technology Park in Redfern.
“Sydney and NSW are generating the jobs of the future and this new technology precinct will help turbo-charge our economy”, Ms Berejiklian said. The Premier estimates the precinct will yield 10,000 new jobs by 2036.
Scott Farquhar added, “Sydney has the potential to be of one of the world’s leading tech cities and the creation of a tech hub sends a very loud signal – not only to the country, but to the rest of the world – that we’re in the race.”
