For many years now, there has been a focus on economic development as a way to deliver improved standards of living and increase wellbeing for local communities.

With a presence in all communities across the state, responsibility for key regulatory activities such as planning and development and a significant proportion of public assets under management, Local Government is a major player in the local and State economy, and has an important role to drive economic development outcomes.

WALGA undertakes policy and provides support to Local Governments on a range of issues relating to economic development.
WALGA supports and collaborates with Economic Development Australia (EDA).
