Western Australian Treasurer Ben Wyatt is upbeat about the outlook for the state economy, after it was hit hard by the downturn in the mining industry. The Chamber of Commerce & Industry has released the findings of a survey which shows that 76 per cent of WA residents expect the economy to improve or remain unchanged during the next quarter, compared with just five per cent three months ago. Meanwhile, labour shortages are forcing some mining companies to recruit workers from Queensland.
