New department to benefit WA regions and industries

We are now part of the new Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, drawing together the former departments of Fisheries, Agriculture and Food, Regional Development and staff of nine Regional Development Commissions.

The consolidated department is part of the State Government’s commitment to create a more efficient public service.

Primary Industries and Regional Development acting Director General Ralph Addis said the new agency would capitalise on opportunities to collaborate to deliver a strong, well equipped service to industry and the WA community.

“The new department is committed to all its stakeholders and will continue to play a pivotal role in supporting the growth and prosperity of the agriculture and fisheries industries, as well as regional communities,” Mr Addis said.
