CEDA and the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME) are pleased to present the WA Annual Resources Overview. The State Minister for Mines and Petroleum and five influential industry leaders will provide exclusive insights into the iron ore, oil and gas, gold, alumina and nickel sectors in Western Australia and across the globe.

History will remember this period as the resources years, with this sector currently contributing 10 per cent of Australian GDP. In 2011, the Western Australian resources sector accounted for $107 billion in sales value, 95 per cent of the State’s merchandise income, 46 per cent of Australia’s total merchandise income and directly employed more than 110,000 people.

However, this industry is not adverse to cyclical changes, financial market fluctuations and international uncertainty.

Join CEDA and CME as these industry leaders deliver their forecasts and assess the trends, challenges and opportunities within the resources sector for the future.
