The Committee for Perth is WA’s leading independent think tank. We have more than 100 members covering over 40 sectors in Greater Perth and WA’s economic base.

We submitted a response on the Parliamentary inquiry into intergenerational challenges and opportunities for the Western Australian economy (2021-2041).

There is widespread agreement among the resident and business community that WA needs to invest in developing future industries and markets, and that positioning the State to be leader in existing and future industries will require significantly upscaled investment in research and development (Committee for Perth, 2021).

This submission has been prepared drawing on our most recent research projects. These reports should be read in conjunction with this submission.

  • The Future of Work (2021);
  • Hashtag Perth (2020);
  • Bigger and Better Beyond the Boom (2018).
