Asian Engagement Strategy

Western Australia has long-standing ties to Asia through trade and investment, tourism, international education, sister-state agreements, sport and cultural exchange programs, and Ministerial engagement. In the past 20 years, the proportion of Western Australia’s population born in Asia has more than doubled. Western Australia values its relationships across Asia and is committed to strengthening these cultural and economic connections.

Asian markets are substantial and constitute some of the most rapidly growing economies in the world. Western Australia intends to take a focused and targeted approach to seizing this economic opportunity to not only grow, but diversify, its exports into Asia. Key to this will be an ongoing commitment to fostering awareness, understanding and collaboration between Western Australia and its Asian neighbours.

Western Australia’s Asian Engagement Strategy 2019-2030: Our future with Asia

On 30 August 2019, the Western Australian Government launched Western Australia’s Asian Engagement Strategy 2019-2030 Our Future with Asia. 

The Strategy provides a framework for Western Australia’s long term engagement with key Asian markets and responds to the need for Western Australia to diversify its economy and create skilled jobs for Western Australians.
