THE NSW PRODUCTIVITY COMMISSION WHITE PAPER: NOTABLE PROPOSALS

* Broaden the supply of high-quality teachers by reviewing the requirement for a two-year Masters degree, piloting employment pathways and disincentivising their transfer to administrative jobs

* Enable further trades training outside the apprenticeship model and better target subsidies for vocational education and training

* Pursue automatic mutual recognition of qualifications with other states so workers can operate seamlessly across state borders

* Increase take-up of drones, e-bikes and personal mobility devices

* Spruik the benefits of recycled water use and boost public confidence in drinking recycled water

* Lift the ban on nuclear electricity generation for small modular reactors

* Follow through on previously-declared plans to replace stamp duty with a broad-based land tax and work to coordinate payroll tax rates across states

* Establish a road user charge for electric vehicles

* Address transport congestion through the incentivisation of off-peak travel for both road and public transport users, and invest in alleviating congestion hot spots

* Expand higher-density development within transport hub areas
