NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet and Treasurer Matt Kean have released their strategy for economic recovery following the Delta COVID-19 outbreak.

The plan has four pillars to secure a strong rebound, the Treasurer explained:

  1. Rebuilding consumer confidence, with measures such as the dine and discover vouchers.
  2. Rebuilding business confidence, with measures such as the stock guarantee.
  3. Focusing on hardest hit sectors, including the arts, entertainment and hospitality with targeted spending.
  4. Funding assistance for the most vulnerable, including a $300 million intensive learning program for young people, mental health investment, and a $500 million package for domestic and family violence survivors.

“These are the investments that will make our state great,” Mr Perrottet said.

The Premier also announced a further spending voucher available to NSW households with school-aged children.

Families will receive one $250 voucher each, to be used for holiday accommodation and ‘discover’ venues and activities.

“This is a big thank you to every single mum and dad across the state.

“We all … owe you a great deal of gratitude.”

The scheme is budgeted at $193 million.

2GB reporter Clinton Maynard has confirmed further details of the scheme, which is budgeted at $193 million.

“A little bit controversial this one, Jim; not [available] until next March.”
