Western Australia’s south east metropolitan councils have joined forces, forming an alliance to highlight the economic value and importance of the region.
Grow South East was formed in 2015 by the Cities of Armadale, Belmont, Canning, Gosnells, Kalamunda and South Perth, Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale and the Town of Victoria Park. Collectively, these regions are the biggest contributor to Perth’s economy, providing $37 billion in gross regional product to the State (14.3% of the State’s gross regional product).
Providing an opportunity to highlight the considerable economic strengths of the south east corridor, the group also provides a forum for the local governments to work together cooperatively on strategic outcomes and key infrastructure projects of regional significance designed to benefit the greater Perth community.
To further emphasis the economic importance of this region, a website has been established providing figures on the region.
