Perth in Focus - Perth as a Resilient Economy

Event Date: 
29 November 2017
Hyatt Regency Perth, Grand Ballroom

As part of our latest research project for Bigger & Better Beyond the Boom, the Committee has developed a FACTBase Special Report that examines the spatial structure and dynamics of the Greater Perth economy. The research determines those industries that are emerging as critical to the region’s economy. Rather than limiting the focus to the transformative impact of the most recent boom period, this report takes a longitudinal perspective of the Greater Perth economy and how it has evolved.

Three key questions are addressed: how and why the Perth economy has changed over time; how it has experienced and recovered from different shocks; and the level of resilience in particular industry sectors.

At our next Perth in Focus luncheon, Prof. Matthew Tonts, FACTBase convenor, will present the findings from the report and reflect on important industries for the future economic development of Perth and Peel. After the keynote address, there will be a Q&A panel session with business leaders, who will reflect on the report and its findings for the economic future of the state.
