John Langoulant AO, Chairman of the Committee for Perth will be hosting the fourth Chairman's 20 Advisory Group Luncheon for 2018.

To ensure the State's future trade needs are met, well-planned port facilities are essential. The Westport: Port and Environs Strategy will provide guidance to the Government on the planning, development and growth of necessary infrastructure so that Perth and Peel can remain globally competitive. This includes planning for the next 50 to 100 years on the future of Fremantle, Kwinana and Bunbury Ports by ensuring they are supported by road, rail and intermodal terminals. John Langoulant, AO, has invited Nicole Lockwood, appointed as the independent chair to lead the Westport Taskforce, as his guest to provide an insight into the Strategy.
