FACTBase 65 - Investment and Trade: Drilling Down into Our Global Attractiveness

Research output: Book/ReportOther output


This FACTBase Bulletin primarily focuses on FDI and other measures, such as Gross State Product and inter-State trade, to understand the investment attractiveness of Western
Australia and, by proxy, Perth as its capital city. To do so, it draws on Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) trade and investment data mapping trajectories since 2001. The final section offers concluding comments regarding the attractiveness of Western Australia (WA) to FDI, based on our analysis. The Bulletin ends with a cautionary note regarding
the impact of WA’s success across Perth, as Australia gears up for the next upsurge in global resource demand.
