A comprehensive package is giving much-needed support to small businesses and non-government organisations.
Supporting small businesses and NGOs
Licence fee waivers
Payroll and land tax assistance
Commercial rent support
More than $6.8 million will go towards expanding financial counselling services to help individuals and small businesses recover.
A new program, PIVOT, will help small business owners develop innovative ways of operating their business. The online program will deliver a range of practical webinars, mentoring and support initiatives, and be delivered by the Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC).
$150 million will be invested into the WA tourism industry, with our most iconic natural attractions such as Kings Park, Margaret River, Karijini National Park, Monkey Mia, the Pinnacles, Rottnest Island and Ningaloo set to benefit from the package.
Works will include construction on new visitor facilities, campsites, trails, jetties, boardwalks and other amenities and infrastructure.
The State Government continues to partner with airlines to secure more affordable airfares to regional WA. This includes the recent announcement of discounted fares to Broome and Kununurra.
