New WA Ministries Welcomed

The Property Council welcomes the announcement of the new WA government ministries.

“Premier McGowan has made the correct call in forming a number of key ministries to achieve economic growth and job creation,” Property Council WA Executive Director Lino Iacomella said.  

“Combining Transport, Planning and Lands sends a strong message that infrastructure coordination is a high priority in delivering job creating projects.We look forward to the formation of Infrastructure WA within this Ministry.

“The combination of Treasury and Finance is also a significant move and should streamline budget processes in government.

“The industry is also very pleased with the combination of seniors and ageing in a single Ministry. This will help break down the barriers between retirement living and aged care development.

“The industry will be looking to the new combination of housing and commerce portfolios to result in a reduction of the red tape around industry regulation in WA.

“The Property Council congratulates all of the new cabinet Ministers and the industry looks forward to working together with the ministers and their agencies to return WA to strong growth,” Mr Iacomella said.
