The Honourable Mark McGowan MLA is the 30th Premier of Western Australia. In his first three years in office, Premier McGowan has secured a fair share of the GST for Western Australia and driven job-creating initiatives such as METRONET, that will transform Perth, Infrastructure WA, a new approach to infrastructure planning for the state, and WA Industry Link, which gives local businesses better opportunities to tender for government work. He has also delivered significant reforms to the State’s public sector, including amalgamating government departments to drive positive change and improve collaboration.
