CEDA’s South West Regional Economic Update

CEDA proudly presents for the first time the WA South West regional economic update in the growing city of Bunbury.

The South West population is set to expand by over 50,000 people in the next 10 years. Join CEDA’s speakers as they discuss what impact this will have on the region in terms of services and communities and what the future of work looks like through an economic lens.


This full day forum will discuss the enormous opportunities for the education, agricultural and resources industries that underpin the region’s economy and examine the infrastructure, investment and policy settings required to ensure a sustainable and prosperous future.
