Western Australia

WA Recovery Plan

The $5.8 billion WA Recovery Plan was launched in July 2020 as an important step in WA’s COVID-19 journey to help drive economic and social recovery across the State.

The plan was developed in consultation with representatives from business, industry, not‑for‑profit organisations, UnionsWA, the public sector, local government and the community.

It is helping us create jobs and training opportunities for future industries. We’re providing investment and incentives, helping restore business and consumer confidence, and rebuilding the economy.

The plan also outlines commitments to those people most impacted by the pandemic – regional WA, young people, women and remote Aboriginal communities.

Delivery of the plan is well underway. Western Australia’s swift response to the initial economic and social impacts of the pandemic means we can now approach the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 from a position of strength.
