Bigger & Better Beyond the Boom
KIA shows that government can drive the economy
In 1952, the Western Australian government signed a State Agreement that created the Kwinana Industrial Area (KIA), the state’s premier industrial area. Sixty-six years later, the KIA is made up of 231 businesses, employs approximately 5,600 people and injects $15.77 billion a year into the local economy. The latest FACTBase Special Report produced by the Committee for Perth’s Bigger and Better Beyond the Boom project, found that while it faces some challenges, the KIA is a critical precinct, home to a number of our highest earning industries and is of vital importance to the future economic well-being of the state.
