    WA occupies a unique geographical location that, if properly utilised, can define it as a natural gateway for Australia and Asia to interconnect. We are, however, now
    living in an era when connectivity is no longer defined by geographical proximity but travelling time. Therefore, WA has become less competitive than the eastern states in attracting human capital, international students and tourists from Asia. Unless efforts are made to help Western Australian Asians feel welcomed, understood and respected, the globalisation process that has brought many Asian talents to Western Australia will also take them away.
