SINCE its establishment in 1990, the TVW Telethon Institute for child Health research has built up an enviable international reputation for its work.

This has included achieving a number of breakthroughs that have attracted worldwide attention.

The centre’s success reflects the talent and expertise we have here in Western Australia and the dedication and commitment of many people.

Now, the institute also has a new home which was officially opened on Friday.

The new building, in Subiaco, was established with the help of State and Commonwealth Government funding package of $22.5 million for the purchase of a site, construction and fit out of the building.



CONGRATULATIONS too, to everyone involved in WA Fashion Week, from the fashion design entrants to the organisers of the many activities and events included in the program.

It was a brilliant showcase for the impressive array of the talent we have among designers in Western Australia as well as highlighting many other important aspects of the industry here.



AFTER watching the battle of the skies on the other side of Australia, it is great to see the cheap airfares flowing into Western Australia.

While it is only temporary and travellers have had to make their bookings quickly to take advantage of the offers, the overwhelming response to the low prices highlights the huge demand in Western Australia for more affordable air travel.

Hopefully, the increased numbers of passengers making use of these cheaper airfares will lead to lower regular fares to and from Western Australian, as well as within our vast State.



LAST week’s Native Title agreement covering approximately 53,000 square kilometres of land in the Upper Gascoyne area shows just what can be achieved through consultation.

The agreement between different interests including native title claimants, pastoralists and the State Government is consistent with what we have been trying to achieve as a Government for seven years.

It also reflects what we have developed in our own native title legislation that will be considered by the Federal Government in October.

A key to the success of the new agreement was the willingness of the native title claimants to replace their right to negotiate with the right to be consulted.

This must send a very clear signal to the Labor Party that Western Australia’s right-to-consult provisions in the proposed legislation should be passed in the Senate.



WESTERN Australia’s major contribution to the Australian economy is highlighted again with the release of the latest international trade data.

Our exports are continuing to grow strongly, increasing by 48.8 per cent in the three months to July this year compared with the same period last year.

This was twice the rate of growth of any other State.
