NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet framed the 2021-22 Budget in the context of a ‘decade of delivery’, emphasising a succession of NSW Liberal Premiers who had “reimagined government services and pioneered a digital revolution.”

The 2021-22 Budget continues NSW’s strong record of digital leadership. It prioritises the goals and investments needed for NSW to become “the world’s most customer-centric government.”

In the (delayed) 2020-21 Budget, delivered in November, the government forecast an operating deficit of $16 billion by 30 June 2021. This was revised to $13 billion in the Half Year statement of February 2021 and was further reduced to $7.9 billion in the 2021-22 Budget. The continued improvement is due to the NSW economy recovering from the pandemic faster than expected.
