The 8th Annual WA Major Projects Conference will take place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on 20-21 June 2017.

The WA Major Projects Conference explores the sectors that have the potential to grow in an economy shifting away from predominantly resource driven investments.

It will host a panel of experts who will discuss new areas of growth that could strengthen Western Australia’s economy, including tourism and infrastructure.

Rick Newnham, Chief Economist for the WA Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will deliver a presentation on the challenges and opportunities available to WA after the mining boom.

Bernadette Cullinane, National Oil and Gas Leader at Deloitte, will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with the growth of and increased value of exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Economist John Nicolaou, Director of ACIL Allen Consulting, will focus on the challenges associated with funding and planning models the WA Government can use to improve vital infrastructure projects.

According to Mr Nicolaou, there is potential for a significant boost to the WA industry with as many as 30,000 new construction jobs being created as works begin.
