State Recovery Advisory Group Meets to Guide Recovery

The Chief Executive Officer of Shelter WA Michelle Mackenzie has met with Premier Mark McGowan to provide input into the State Government’s State Recovery Plan.

Shelter WA joins a group of key stakeholders comprised of representatives from business, industry, not‑for‑profit organisations, UnionsWA, the public sector, local government and the community. They will provide input on the State Government’s Draft Impact Statement, developed to summarise the known and emerging impacts of COVID-19 and focusing on five key recovery areas – health, economic and infrastructure, social, industry and regions. During the first workshop, the Group will share perspectives on the priority impacts of the pandemic on their respective fields.

Path to Recovery

“This major workshop is an important step in Western Australia’s path to recovery,” said Premier Mark McGowan.

“The Western Australian community has done an incredible job to get to this point, where we can focus on economic recovery and continue to plan to rebuild our State.

“The Advisory Group includes representatives from a wide range of important sectors, and their expertise will be vital in the development of the State Recovery Plan.” – Mark McGowan.

“Since Phase 3 of the roadmap to ease COVID-19 restrictions began almost a week ago, we’ve seen many more Western Australians get back to work, and businesses across the State get back to a more normal level of activity.”
