Major events to boost economy

The NSW government says Sydney’s events calendar is set to boost the city’s visitor economy.

Tourism Minister Ben Franklin said the events, set to take place over the coming months, would be a major drawcard for the Harbour City.

“In sport, we’ve got the NRL grand final, the Women’s basketball world cup,” Mr Franklin said.

“And it’s not just about sport … we’ve also got Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber and Elton John in terms of concerts.
