Join Australia's Economic Powerhouse

Western Australia’s stable economy is still attractive as the boom conditions of the previous decade give way to opportunities in new industries and sectors like tourism and renewable energy.

Perth has experienced a strong population growth that has resulted in an increased demand for more services which require qualified workers  – from account managers to front end programmers,  carpenters to site managers and scientists. Our city is alive with a cultural rebirth and a mix of people from all over the world.

We invite you to come and be part of the success which is driving our nation.

Western Australia plays an important role in Australia’s economy – with just 11 per cent of the national population, it generates 31 percent of the country’s export income.

Perth’s geographical location means that it is in the same time zone with many Asian countries, and is contactable with Europe during business hours, making it easier to communicate with major trading partners such as China, India, Japan, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

With rapidly-expanding international business partnerships, Western Australia supplies world class products and services locally and internationally, including:

  • Agricultural produce
  • Information and communication technologies
  • Defence systems
  • Manufactured goods
  • Education
  • Mining equipment and services
  • Energy
  • Precious and base minerals
  • Environmental systems
  • Resource and infrastructure engineering
  • Food and wine
  • Tourism
  • Healthcare
