The city of Perth generates $148 billion for Australia’s overall GDP while regional Western Australia generates an additional $106 billion.

“Western Australia generates more than 40 per cent of Australia’s merchandise exports,” says Darrell Todd, founder of thinkingaustralia.

Emigrate to Australia: Perth’s economic boom

With the end of the mining boom, the building and construction industry has slowed down but construction remains the third largest employer in Western Australia.

Around ten per cent of the state’s workforce is employed directly or indirectly in construction industries, according to a new report by SGS Economics and Planning.

Major government infrastructure projects have boosted the state’s construction industries with over 90,000 workers employed directly and thousands more employed indirectly via support services.

Many thousands of new jobs are set to be created by the Western Australia government’s Next Generation Account, a $3 billion plan for more major infrastructure projects.
