$167 billion worth of projects in pipeline

By Staff Reporter

Strength in Western Australia’s economy and property market has been largely based on the local businesses’ ability to hold on to billions of dollars worth of resource projects, according to a recent report.

While there has been volatility in commodity prices, and reports that the mining boom is set for a “slow down” over 2013, since July 2011, $30 billion of contracts were given to WA-based suppliers, leaving confidence at a high for the market.

The November 2012 Local Content Report revealed that 75,000 jobs were created on the back of these contracts since July 2011, with $167 billion worth of projects in the pipeline or currently under construction, announced commerce minister Simon O’Brien.

Part of this success may be on the back of project proponents operating under the State Agreement Act to keep contracts within the state.

"Ongoing success can only be based on government project proponents and suppliers working together, which is why the Industry Facilitation and Support Program the state government introduced in 2011 has been such a success," Mr O’Brien said.

"This year, 120 local small and medium-sized businesses were allocated $2.5million to assist in areas including capital equipment upgrade; risk management and quality assurance; training; and business systems improvement."
