The Illawarra Business Chamber is looking forward to welcoming the NSW Treasurer, the Hon. Mike Baird, to its annual Origin Illawarra Business Awards dinner
“We’re delighted that the Treasurer is able to join us at this important celebration of local business achievements,” said Mike Leask, CEO of the Illawarra Business Chamber.

“It will be a great opportunity to hear directly from the Treasurer about his views on our region and the local economy.

“I’d also like to acknowledge local MPs, Mr Gareth Ward (Member for Kiama) and Mr Lee Evans (Member for Heathcote), who were instrumental in organising the Treasurer’s attendance at this event.

“We thank them for their efforts in securing such a senior member of the Government to attend our region’s major business event,” said Mr Leask.

Mr Ward said the Treasurer's visit highlights both the significance and importance of Illawarra business for the NSW Government.

"The Illawarra Business Awards are a wonderful opportunity to recognise the achievements of our business leader's right across the district.

"The Treasurer's participation in this night of nights for business highlights just how seriously we regard business in the Illawarra and the importance of continuing to build and grow a strong economy in our region,” concluded Mr Ward.

The black-tie event will take place on 2 November at the WIN Entertainment Centre from 6:15pm.

“Ticket sales close this Wednesday, so if people would like to join their peers at this key-note annual event then I’d encourage them to buy tickets today to avoid disappointment,” said Mr Leask.
