The Western Australian Government’s May 2018 Budget has forecast a deficit of $A1.3bn for 2017-18, while it expects to deliver a $A572m surplus in 2020-21. The Budget papers also show that the state’s net debt is forecast to be $A39.1bn in 2018-19 and $A40.85bn in 2019-20, with Premier Mark McGowan reiterating that the government will reduce debt gradually. Meanwhile, Budget measures are expected to result in the average household paying an extra $A292 in government fees and charges in 2018-19.
