The contribution of the extractive industries to the Western Australian economy
The extractive industries were shown in a variety of research reports to make a contribution to the WA economy which is considerably greater than casual observation of, for example, employment statistics would suggest.
This extra contribution stems from the complex links of the extractive industries to the rest of the WA economy.
Links which are only measurable with sophisticated computer models of the economy.
