Business Conditions survey

COVID-19 Special Edition March 2020

Quarterly report of the NSW economy informed by the businesses of NSW

The NSW economy is facing multiple economic shocks which have severely impacted business confidence and the economic outlook in the first quarter of 2020.

In this special edition report of the Business Conditions Survey for NSW, we asked additional questions to understand the impact on business of COVID-19, bushfires, drought and other weather events that have impacted NSW in the first quarter of this year.

While it is clear that COVID-19 represents the most significant threat to the economy, some regions and industries have also been acutely impacted by other factors such as bushfires and drought which have had a concentrated impact in some parts of NSW.
