WA business leaders and academics have given this Federal Budget the big thumbs up. In Perth, more than 130 business leaders and academics were treated to an analysis of the Budget at a Committee for Economic Development of Australia briefing.
RURAL WA will get a boost from some of the projects outlined in this State Budget. Nearly $40 million has been set aside for the development of the $200 million maritime support facility and the marine industry technology park at Jervoise Bay.
THE Federal Government should hold the line, press ahead with a reform agenda of the financial sector and avoid any tendency towards populist backsliding, which could undo all the good that has been done says ASX chairman, Maurice Newman.
