Dialogue Launch: Best of the West

Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres today officially launched the new Best of the West guidebook. Created by the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue Best of the West is an inaugural regional snapshot of the best places and events, infrastructure and innovations, in this dynamic area.

Best of the West was produced in order to share the Dialogue’s insight into the range of suburbs, projects, events, centres of education, activities, business successes, natural assets and hidden gems that are helping shape the growth of the most dynamic region in the country.

Executive Director Adam Leto said the Dialogue proudly partnered with Western Sydney University to produce Best of the West.

Best of the West brings together the proud and diverse range of Western Sydney communities and encourages everyone to think broadly about experiences in our part of the world,” Mr Leto said.

“Growth and change never stop in Western Sydney. The Dialogue is proud to share the education, business, health and community goings on from our unique perspective in the driver’s seat of the nation’s fastest growing region,” he said.

The insider’s guide was designed to spark a debate in the community about all that is great in the area which is too often dismissed by its eastern and northern neighbours.

An electronic copy of the 151 page guidebook can be accessed free here or via the Dialogue’s website. A selection of heads of industry from the public and private sector, representing Western Sydney stadiums, airports and more attended the launch by Minister Ayres, who is also the Member for Penrith, which was held at West HQ in Rooty Hill.

The community is encouraged to join the wave of Twitter and Instagram contributors nominating their own suggestions for #bestofthewest at @bestofthewest_ Limited hard copies are available on request.
