Pilbara News - - News - Glenn Cord­ing­ley

A re­search project aimed at en­cour­ag­ing in­vest­ment in four mid and north-western re­gions of WA will be launched in Perth later this month.

The Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try WA said the idea was to cre­ate deeper en­gage­ment be­tween in­vest­ment project own­ers and cap­i­tal mar­kets.

In the launch book­let, up to 70 in­vest­ment projects are pro­filed from the Mid West, Kim­ber­ley, Gas­coyne, and Pil­bara re­gions.

They rep­re­sent com­mer­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties seek­ing cap­i­tal and Gov­ern­ment en­abling in­fras­truc­ture projects that may fa­cil­i­tate com­mer­cial in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Event at­ten­dees will re­ceive a copy of the Mid and North Western Aus­tralia In­vest­ment Port­fo­lio book­let, in­clud­ing the scope, in­vest­ment time­frame and con­tact de­tails for each pro­file.

The event will be for­mally launched by long-stand­ing Fed­eral MP Warren Truss.

Mr Truss re­cently re­tired as the deputy prime min­is­ter of Aus­tralia and the Min­is­ter for In­fras­truc­ture and Re­gional De­vel­op­ment.

The launch will be held at the Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try of WA, 180 Hay Street, East Perth, on Mon­day, July 25, from 2pm-5pm. Tick­ets cost $90. For in­for­ma­tion, go to cciwa. com/events/what­son.
