South West Development Commission

About us

The South West Development Commission is part of the Western Australian government. Its core purpose is to drive economic development outcomes across the South West in partnership with public and private sector stakeholders.

By 2050 we aim to ensure that the South West is an internationally recognised region of excellence for high quality agricultural products, tourism experiences and a centre of excellence for mining and advanced manufacturing technologies. We will protect our environment and quality of life, ensuring equitable living standards for all communities.

The SWDC’s Strategic Plan identifies six priority sectors where significant growth and diversification opportunities exist for the South West region.

  • Technology and advanced manufacturing
  • Mining and mining equipment, technology and services sector
  • Energy including renewables
  • Primary industries including agriculture, forestry and fishing
  • Tourism, events and creative industries
  • Trade and investment
