Message from Rick Newnham, CCI Chief Economist
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia (CCI) economics team has their finger on the pulse when it comes to the Western Australian economy.
CCI Members benefit from their expertise, which is available through a range of publications, regular media engagements and business events.
Our economists keep Members ahead of the pack with their knowledge of how the economy is evolving and the impact it may have on their business. Leaning on our international and national experience, our economists link local business impact to global events.
The Western Australian economy is closely tied to global markets, which means understanding the local picture requires a global outlook. Through your CCI membership, you can take advantage of the CCI economics team to better position your business for growth.
