Region. Need for separate group

The Western Sydney regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC) urges the government to expand its definition of regional Australia to include the outskirts of major cities, such as Western Sydney. With a significant peri-urban agricultural industry and associated food processing and manufacturing jobs in the urban areas – the industry is worth over $1.5 billion to the NSW economy and provides almost 22,000 local jobs in primary production and food processing – Western Sydney should be defined as its own region and have a separate government-funded Regional Development Australia (RDA) to promote its interest and identity.
