Department of State Development
The former Department of State Development provided leadership to drive responsible development for Western Australia's future. Working closely with industry, communities and government agencies the Department delivered significant State initiatives and facilitated major resource, industrial and infrastructure projects. It also worked to attract strategic investment to Western Australia, assist the development of export markets, and enable the development of strategic industrial land and infrastructure. The Department of State Development was amalgamated with the industry promotions and innovation functions of the Department of Commerce and the Western Australian Tourism Commission on the 1st July 2017 to form the new Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.
