Business Sydney Members & Guests

At this exclusive Business Sydney luncheon, the re-elected Independent State Member for Sydney, Alex Greenwich MP, joined our members and guests to outline his plans and priorities. Alex also provided his views on how he sees the newly-elected NSW Labor Government, led by Premier Chris Minns, working with the new Parliament as a minority government.

After his address, Alex sat down to a Q&A facilitated by Alexandra Smith, State Policital Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald, and Paul Nicolaou, Executive Director, Business Sydney, to delve further into the opportunities and challenges at Macquarie Street for this next term of Parliament.

Independent State Member for Sydney

Alex Greenwich MP is the Independent Member for Sydney in the New South Wales Parliament and was first elected in 2012. Alex was the Chairperson of the NSW Legislative Assembly’s very active Environment and Planning Committee and a member of the Privilege and Ethics Committee, the Premier’s Homelessness Council and the Legislative Assembly Speaker’s Panel.

Alex was the co-chair of the successful YES campaign that delivered marriage equality in 2017, a movement he led for over a decade and co-authored “Yes, Yes, Yes: Australia’s Journey to Marriage Equality”. He participated in the 2nd series of “Filthy, Rich, and Homeless” on SBS to bring awareness to Australia’s homelessness crisis. Alex has addressed international conferences and legislatures on Human Rights, LGBTIQA+ equality, and effective campaigning. In 2019, Alex introduced the co-sponsored Reproductive Healthcare Reform Bill which decriminalised abortion in NSW. In May 2022, his 2021 co-sponsored Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill passed the NSW parliament, providing hope and choice for terminally ill people in NSW. Alex’s forthcoming Equality Bill will remove LGBTIQA+ discrimination from NSW law.
