Boorloo Kworp 'Perth is Good'

This report analyses and presents the findings of the Committee for Perth’s Hashtag Perth project which commenced in 2019 following the Bigger and Better Beyond the Boom (B4) project. B4 had established that Perth is falling behind in the global race for city-competitiveness and identified a shared desire to diversify its economy, develop growing and innovative sectors and create distinguishable strengths. Forging a strong, positive, recognisable reputation was highlighted as an important part of this process.

  • 6. Collaborate for year round vibrancy across Perth
  • 7. Look north for opportunity and utilise existing relationships with Asia to strengthen ties with Perth
  • 8. Target economic stimulus and economic development funds to diversify the economy and strengthen Perth’s reputation
