"This new program will enhance our existing efforts to support small business and will also provide some benchmarks for the Pilbara against regional WA. There is a wealth of talent and entrepreneurial spirit in the region already, this is a great opportunity to ensure we are making the most of local skills and talent.”

Justin Fromm, Director Economic Development, Land & Infrastructure, Pilbara Development Commission
