The NSW government will cut red-tape for investors in the NEXUS Industrial Precinct in Albury, as part of a "regional job precinct".
Deputy Premier John Barilaro visited the Ettamogah Rail Hub to announce the industrial area was the first of four additions to the initiative he would announce.
A similar precinct in Wagga has "guaranteed a 30-day approval process" for businesses.
Mr Barilaro said the NEXUS precinct "was the first off the rank" of four to be announced.
"That will bring opportunity for industry and businesses," he said.
"You know, one of the things that businesses are annoyed with ... is planning, about being given certainty around planning, and when they will actually get approval.
"The New South Wales government ... does all that heavy lifting up front, does all the planning, gets all the environmental approvals.
"Our focus in the initial stages is to work with council about the planning process and cutting red-tape.
"That's the approach that we need to give confidence of businesses."
On any funding attached to the precinct, Albury MP Justin Clancy said there continued to be state government investment in NEXUS.
"This is very much talking about what levers can the government utilise," he said.
"This site is still very much in its infancy, it's a great strategic location.
"So my comment would be to call out to anyone interested in investment in regional areas; look no further than Albury-Wodonga."
Mr Barilaro said regional areas would be the "tonic" for the economic burdens of COVID-19.
"This term 'bush change' annoys me; it's not a bush change, it's a city change, moving from one city like Sydney, to a city Albury or Wagga," he said.
"It's clear people are now choosing rural and regional NSW.
"The special activation precinct process and program will be so important in relation to actually getting us out of the economic crisis we're in because of COVID.
"We allocated the $4.2 billion that we received from Snowy Hydro - every single cent going to regional rural New South Wales - we attached to our blueprint attached projects like the special activation precincts, has meant for the first time we had a vision, a roadmap, and the dollars to actually make it happened."
He urged anyone in bushfire areas who is yet to receive adequate support to contact the state government.

"If there's a single person out there that hasn't had the support, that means I can't rest easy," Mr Barilaro said.
"We said that we will not end the bushfire recovery program until we know that everybody has been looked after.
"There are communities that still need support ... if you weren't ready, please come forward now so we can support you."
