EVENT OVERVIEW

Western Australia continued to record the fastest population growth (2.3%) of all Australian states and territories during the 12 months to 31 March, 2010. The Government's State of Australian Cities 2010 report forecasts Perth's population will double from 1.6 million to 3.4 million by 2056 and yet, last year, WA's overseas migration intake recorded its lowest March quarter estimate in four years, likely attributed to decreases in the number of students, low numbers of temporary visas granted for entry into Australia and reduced program levels in 09/10 for permanent skilled migrants, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

With an outlook like this, it's not news to anyone that WA already has and will face many "make or break" challenges over the coming years to combat the increasing skills shortage crisis, consider how to disperse the concentrated metropolitan population that is placing pressure on infrastructure and services while many regional communities are unable to attract the workers they need and remain at the forefront of innovative and vast projects that contribute enormously to the national economy.

Heading up one program in response to regional concerns over the State Government's ability to deliver services to regional communities - Royalties for Regions - and keynote speaker for the first Inventing the Future event of 2011 is the Hon Brendon Grylls. As Minister for Regional Development; Lands, Minister Assisting the Minister for State Development, and Leader of the Nationals WA, Mr Grylls will ensure CEDA's series covering Population Dispersal and Sustainability will leave you contemplating WA's achievements to-date and debate realistic objectives and consequences for its expanding communities, both regionally and within the metropolis.
