As Australia’s largest state, Western Australia is a world-leading mining, energy and agricultural economy, with an abundance of natural resources.
Western Australia shares a similar time zone with many high growth countries in Asia, and its geographic position makes it an ideal gateway to the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean region. The State has a transparent, predictable and mature regulatory system ensuring it remains a top low-risk investment destination in the region.
Its capital city, Perth, is the only Australian city with a direct connection with Europe offering a direct flight between London and Perth.
