Projects funded under the MWIP will provide a substantial economic stimulus to the region over the five year period and potentially generate employment opportunities for local businesses in the planning, construction and operational stages of the proposed projects/initiatives.
The objectives of the MWIP and the proposed investment in the priority regional projects clearly link to Royalties for Regions objectives and policy.
As of 26 October 2012 the responsibility for the implementation of the Mid West Investment Plan will transfer from RDL to the Commission. Having one entity managing portfolio programs relating to the respective regions will provide better coordination, efficiencies and delivery across Government. The Commission will be responsible for recommending strategic projects for MWIP funding to the Minister and Cabinet as well as monitoring the delivery of funded projects.
