The state government has signed an agreement with the mining industry to ensure social and economic benefits to the Pilbara community with a focus on pathways to employment.

The Pilbara Charter was signed by Premier Mark McGowan along with Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia chief executive Reg Howard-Smith and leaders at Western Australia’s largest resources companies.

The agreement, which was developed in unison with the CME and local mining companies, prioritises employment, education and training, in particular the development of pathways to job creation.

Mr McGowan said the charter would guarantee positive outcomes for the Pilbara region.

"The Pilbara Collaboration Charter provides a framework through which government and industry can work together to deliver further social and economic benefits to communities in the Pilbara,” he said

"With a particular focus on jobs, and bridging the gap between training and employment, this charter ensures that those in the Pilbara have access to economic opportunity.

"This government has worked closely with the Chamber of Minerals and Energy and industry to ensure a productive relationship with the resources industry, and this charter is a new way for us to continue to work together."

Other areas included in the charter include community development and health, procurement and supply chain and joint project initiatives.
