Over the past eight years the State Government has invested more than $6.9 billion through Royalties for Regions into more than 3,700 projects that directly build the economic strength and capability of our regions. The Royalties for Regions program underpins the State’s long-term commitment to build vibrant regions with strong economies that are desirable places to live, work and invest. Since 2008, Royalties for Regions has helped to significantly address the infrastructure and service gaps caused by decades of underinvestment in regional Western Australia. Investments through Royalties for Regions have assisted regional Western Australian communities to strengthen their capabilities and realise their economic potential.
Royalties for Regions focuses on delivering benefits to regional Western Australia through:
- Jobs growth
- Economic growth
- Capable people
Royalties for Regions provides a dedicated regional development investment fund – facilitating economic, business and social development. This Royalties for Regions Progress Report highlights the range of projects undertaken across the State in 2015-16
