This FACTBase Special Report is a key input into the Bigger & Better Beyond the Boom project. It examines the development of the Kwinana Industrial Area, including an overview of its early origins, industry ecosystem and economic contribution.

The report shows that, since its establishment in 1952, Kwinana has been one of the most significant drivers of economic activity in Western Australia. Not only is it a key centre for employment, but a major contributor to innovation, export earnings and economic growth.

The report also reflects on the importance of securing the long-term future of the Kwinana Industrial Area, particularly with regard to infrastructure, governance and long-term competitiveness.

The information in the report will be used to help shape a series of recommendations to be released at the end of 2018 and contribute to a roadmap for Perth and Peel’s economic future.
