The McGowan Government has launched the Western Australian Future Battery Industry Strategy, designed to aid the state’s growth as a battery minerals exporter.

The strategy was launched today by Premier Mark McGowan and Petroleum Minister Bill Johnston, who said it signified the government’s “commitment to establishing a world-leading, sustainable, value-adding battery industry in our state”.

McGowan added that it was a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Western Australia”.

“Our Future Battery Industry Strategy will drive the development of the Western Australian battery materials industry that will create local jobs, contribute to skills development and economic diversification, and maximise benefits to regional communities,” he added.
