CEDA WA State of the Regions Report

The CEDA Western Australia State of the Regions series has been a significant success drawing more than 1600 attendees and more than 120 speakers across nine events during the last two years.

Western Australia’s regions are vital drivers of the State’s economy. CEDA’s aim through this series has been to bridge the gap between the city and the regions and to showcase the plans and opportunities for regional Western Australia as drivers of economic and social development for the State and the nation.

In particular, this series sought to improve understanding of how Western Australia’s regions were adapting and transitioning for the future through inno-vation and best practice principles; how they were capitalising on new business opportunities; and what industry profiles were evolving in response to changing circumstances.

The series also provided an opportunity to:

  • Showcase the leadership within regional Western Australia and provide thought-leadership to the regions;

  • Provide a succinct update on the vision for each region, highlighting strengths and weaknesses to facilitate discussion on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead; and

  • Facilitate new connections and networking across the regions within business, government, academia and not-for-profit sector.
