Perth in Focus: Kwinana as a catalyst for economic development

Event Date:

Crown Ballroom, Crown Perth
Great Eastern Highway

The Kwinana Industrial Area has grown to become one of the most important economic assets in Western Australia, contributing $15.77 billion per annum and created new industries, new jobs and new capabilities. With the McGowan Government pledging $6 million to plan for an outer harbour, our latest FACTBase Special Report documents the development of the Kwinana Industrial Area as a catalyst for economic development.

After the keynote address, there will be a Q&A panel session with business leaders who will reflect on the research and discuss how industry and government can work together for the future prosperity of the State.

A copy of the report will be made available to all attendees at the conclusion of the breakfast.

Speaker and Panellists:
- Prof. Matthew Tonts: Pro Vice-Chancellor/Executive Dean, The University of Western Australia
- Nicole Lockwood: Chair, Westport Taskforce
- Joanne Abbiss: Chief Executive Officer, City of Kwinana
- Georgia Harford-Mills: Research Officer, Committee for Perth
