Feedback attributed to Power Minister Invoice Johnston:
“Western Australia is a
globally important battery and significant minerals processing hub and it’s important
we do all we are able to to additional capitalise on this unbelievable alternative.
“A diversified battery
trade is forecast to contribute almost $17 billion in gross worth added and
over 61,000 jobs to the nationwide financial system by 2030. That is greater than twice the
worth first estimated in 2021.
“Listening to from the
