Western Australia's first
Asian Engagement Strategy will support the relationships, knowledge and skills necessary to grow trade and investment with Asian markets, diversifying and expanding the State's economy and creating jobs. The strategy, a McGowan Government election promise, recognises the rise of the Asian region as the biggest economic, social and cultural opportunity for WA this century.
Asian Engagement Minister Peter Tinley said, "Asia currently represents 42 per cent of the world's economy, and is growing rapidly. By 2050, the region directly to WA's north will represent more than half the global economy. WA's future prosperity is deeply connected to its ability to capitalise on its relationship with Asia. The once in a lifetime opportunity to rise with Asia will only be fully realised through provision of the strategic leadership and essential frameworks necessary to delivering this promise."
