The case for change: privatisation of Western Australia’s electricity networks
Governments around Australia have embraced privatisation over the past two decades. In selling government-owned businesses and assets, the capital raised has been used to either pay down debt or recycle the proceeds into new public infrastructure.
As a centrepiece of the Treasurer's 2016-17 State Budget speech, he stated the Government would seek to make a decision on the sale of Western Power and Horizon Power following the March 2017 election.
The case for change is compelling. The privatisation of WA’s electricity networks could raise up to $16 billion – money that could critically help fund our current and future infrastructure needs.
As WA approaches a state election in 2017, this issue will continue to generate significant community discussion.
Please join us for breakfast to hear WA Treasurer Mike Nahan discuss the privatisation agenda as he speaks about PwC's independent report into privatisation of WA's electricity networks.
