Purposely and strategically established for industry, The Western Trade Coast (WTC) is a globally recognised industrial and port region providing a perfect base for industrial operations in Western Australia.

Western Australia has a strong export-focused economy which continues to outperform the nation’s economic growth. In recent years, Western Australia’s Gross State Product (GSP) represents approximately 6% of the nation’s GDP.

This strong economic performance is set to continue with significant demand for mineral and energy resources from Asian markets, with Western Australian industries supplying China and Japan in particular. The State is ideally positioned as the closest Australian State to the Indian Ocean region, which now accounts for 46 per cent of Australia's exports.

Western Australia has a growing population of more than 2.5 million and, with its famous long days of sunshine, great diversity of landscapes and laidback lifestyle, coupled with business opportunities, it attracts people from all over the world to live and work.

The State Government is committed to the continued development of the area and the enhancement of industrial infrastructure that underpins sustained opportunities for business growth. The Western Australian business environment encourages growth and prosperity, with pro-development government policies and a highly skilled and innovative workforce of more than 1.1 million people.
