Regional Local Content Initiative to boost jobs in the regions

The WA Government is continuing to deliver on its commitment to maximise regional local content opportunities, announcing a further $300,000 to support small businesses competing for tenders.

The Regional Local Content Initiative will receive $300,000 over three years to assist regional small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to compete for public and private supply tenders and contracts.

The initiative will be delivered via the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development’s Local Content Advisers network, based in Regional Development Commissions throughout the State, who work with regional SMEs and communities to cultivate business expertise and opportunities.

By supporting business growth in the regions, the investment will generate flow-on benefits, creating employment opportunities, improving the local economies and boosting the social well-being of regional communities.

The initiative will reach across the State, encompassing rural and remote communities and a range of SMEs, including Aboriginal businesses.
