The City of Perth’s Economic Development Unit is responsible for developing and deploying strategic policies, plans and projects, to guide the future economic prosperity of the city, through the attraction, growth and support of businesses in the city. In order to achieve these aims the Economic Development Unit provides a range of business support services to those businesses who have chosen to operate in the city, or are interested in doing so in the future. Some of the services available include marketing and networking activities, assistance with economic development strategies and business plans, as well as the provision of the latest demographic information, which can be used to inform business decision making.
In March 2010, the Economic Development Unit released a new strategy (Economic Development Strategy 2010-14) to guide the economic development of the city and provide stronger support to key industry sectors, stakeholders and local businesses in order to progress the wide-ranging goals of the City of Perth: Vision 2029. The strategy takes into account key factors such as employment and opportunity, standards of living and the strength of our resources, education, retail and tourism sectors. Also identified is the need for increased engagement with residents, local businesses, all levels of government and the global business community in order to achieve its goals and firmly establish our city, both regionally and globally.
