After significant economic growth and development off the back of Western Australia’s recent mining boom, Perth is now in a position to reflect on what it means to be mostly a resource and minerals based economy, and how this can be leveraged and diversified to benefit future growth opportunities.

This report is a key input into the Bigger & Better Beyond the Boom project and has examined Perth’s history of economic development since World War II. It provides a detailed look at Perth’s industries, in order to identify those with the potential for steering our future. This report will inform a series of recommendations to be released at the end of 2018, by providing a roadmap for Perth and Peel’s economic future.
