From the Director’s Desk

 

Welcome to the first edition of the KIC member newsletter – InFocus. Each month we look forward to sharing with you the news, activities, and events across the KIC.

On behalf of the KIC team, I hope you had a happy and safe Easter.

It has been a busy first month as Director of the KIC. I would like to thank all members for making me feel so welcome. I have enjoyed visiting a number of your operations to help grow my knowledge of local issues and discuss what you need from your peak industry association. I am looking forward to meeting many more of you in the near future.

I would also like to extend my warm thanks and appreciation to Chris Oughton for his 17 years of service to the KIC. Chris has been generous in sharing his knowledge with me as part of a well planned and orderly leadership transition.

I have also focused on reconnecting with key government stakeholders and other decision makers to continue to discuss the range of issues facing the Kwinana Industrial Area. I have already met a number of key stakeholders such as the Premier, the head of the Westport Project, the Deputy Chair of the Global Advanced Industries Hub Taskforce, the Director General of JTSI, The Department of Premier and Cabinet, the WA Planning Commission and local mayors and elected officials.

With State and Federal elections to be held next year, now is the time for KIC to advocate for the policies and investment that is urgently needed along the Western Trade Coast. Government initiatives including AUKUS and Westport have placed Kwinana at the centre of the political and policy conversation, and we have a rare opportunity to drive outcomes that will deliver benefits for generations to come. You will be hearing from the KIC about the issues that matter to local industry.

I look forward to keeping you updated on all the work of the KIC.

We get virtual visitors from around the world and find the different locations very interesting and would appreciate if you could provide your country of origin. In order to stop the Bots, if you could also add your email address. Please note we will not spam you in any way. Thank you!
