WHY INVEST IN
WESTERN AUSTRALIA


Located close to Western Australia's abundant resources, connected to key infrastructure and skilled local workforces, Strategic Industrial Areas (SIAs) are carefully planned to support investment in the downstream processing of the State's resources and other strategic industrial activities

SIAs bring industry leading businesses closer together in a well protected, appropriately zoned location and all within arm's reach of the primary resources and supporting infrastructure they need to thrive.

Approximately one quarter of the world's population is within close shipping proximity to Western Australia.

Western Australia is one of the world's largest producers of primary resources such as natural gas, petroleum, iron ore, spodumene, bauxite and other battery minerals as well as offering an ideal location for hydrogen production. SIAs are an ideal location to value add to these resources in close export proximity to the Asian region and beyond.

Over half of Australia's resource projects under construction or committed are in Western Australia, creating easy access to high quality, low cost resources for downstream processing opportunities

Investment in one of our SIAs could place you alongside some of the world's largest companies, including Alcoa, Chevron, BP, Woodside, BHP Billiton, Tianqi, Puma, Albemarle or Yara.

ABOUT STRATEGIC
INDUSTRIAL AREAS


Led by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and delivered by the Western Australian State Government’s central development agency, DevelopmentWA, SIAs benefit from the WA State Government’s Lead Agency Framework, designed to ensure proponents can be guided effectively through approvals processes and know what is expected of them to bring complex business operations, new technologies, innovations and progressive operations to life.

SIAs are strategic areas that play an important role in supporting downstream processing projects and provide essential jobs and business opportunities.

Planned for downstream processing and other heavy and strategic industries, these areas are surrounded by an industry protection zone to ensure heavy industry can continue to operate without land use conflict.

SIAs are designed to connect with resources in the region, existing
infrastructure and centres of population. SIAs are connected to
port, rail, road and other major service infrastructure such as
power, gas, process water and telecommunications.

SIAs are connected to local workforces and the
rest of the world via Western Australia's ports network.

SIAs have large land areas that are 'project ready' for proponents to invest in today.

TESTIMONIALS


Puma Energy, Rockingham SIA

WA itself is close to Asia, so for us it's a natural gate to Asia. This will be the first port of our supply chain. Supporting infrastructure is all there. Road, rail, port access

AGIG, Ashburton North

Oakajee – huge magnetite province. Great to have such a major centre as Geraldton right there. Like Kemerton – near Bunbury. Ability to go about business safely and environmentally consciously, but with available workforce and little impact on residential population. Liveability is important to sustaining our workforce.

East Rockingham Waste to Energy, Rockingham SIA

WA government has a can do attitude for ingenuity and innovation. They help navigate the complexities of approvals and present a roadmap to make it happen.

Avertas Energy, Kwinana SIA

This is a partnership with government. This is not a transaction. DevelopmentWA and JTSI are interested in your project objectives rather than just giving you a site.”
