    Event description

    Resources Sector powers the South West’s economy.

    Presented by the Chamber of Minerals and Energy WA

    The Chamber of Minerals & Energy WA and Bunbury Geographe Chamber of Commerce and Industry present the CME’s 2022-23 Economic Contribution Factsheets for WA and the South West.

    At this event, CME Senior Economist Aaron Walker will provide an outline of the resources sector’s contribution to the South West including:

    • Jobs and incomes, business procurement, community support and government contributions.
    • An update on recent commodity market developments.
    • The areas where CME is calling on the WA Government to partner with industry to achieve our shared decarbonisation ambitions

    CME surveys a sample of its members annually to quantify actual expenditure by the WA resources sector on payment of wages and salaries, business purchases, community contributions, local councils and payments to the State and Commonwealth Government. Through this direct spending, we also estimate the sector’s indirect contributions to the Western Australian and Australian economies through supply chain effects.

    The drivers behind recent declines in lithium and nickel prices will also be explored, as well as actions that can help improve the competitiveness of WA’s resources sector on the global stage.
