Government of Western Australia - Business Migration Centre

Business Opportunities

Western Australia's diversified industries and strong economic outlook provide migrants with a broad range of employment and business opportunities.

The State's services, technologies and specialist manufacturing sectors continue to grow, while the traditional strengths of it's economy - mining, petroleum and agriculture - continue to lead exports with products in demand worldwide.

Strong economic conditions and growth have translated into many new business investments and business opportunities throughout the State.

These factors, together with employment growth and a low unemployment rate, have created skill shortages across many industries, generating a wide range of jobs in demand.

The Government of Western Australian is committed to supporting diverse business development and economic growth throughout the State. A range of services are available through the Small Business Development Corporation to assist and support business migrants to relocate to Western Australia.
