A key component in the current success of the Mid West Region is the Mid West Development Commission, whose main role is to foster the on-going sustainability growth in Geraldton and the region as a whole.

The Mid West accounts for one fifth of the area of Western Australia, about twice the size of the United Kingdom, so the responsibility is considerable.

David Grant talks with acting CEO of the Commission, Steve Douglas, and finds that considerable public and government funding has enabled important projects to proceed, including the Geraldton Port Enhancement; the Southern Transport Corridor; and the Regional Hospital.

Mr. Douglas emphasises that the growth of the Mid West Region now depends greatly on the injection of funds from the private sector in support of the public monies that have now been committed to improved infrastructure.
