Good evening to you all, it is a pleasure to address you at a very important event, hosted by a very important organisation.
Business, and businesses, are at the forefront of our society. They are our chief providers of goods and services, and the main drivers of our economy. Businesses employ the men and women of New South Wales, and help fund the development of our state.
While we have a strong business sector, there is always potential to grow, and in recent times we have seen that potential abroad.
