Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan says other states and the federal government must not seek to change the existing arrangement for distributing goods and services tax revenue. WA’s share of GST revenue is currently $0.70 in the dollar, having fallen to a low of about $0.30 in the dollar during the last mining boom. New South Wales in particular has criticised the GST equalisation deal, but McGowan argues that NSW now receives more than $0.90 in the dollar from GST revenue. He has also urged the federal government to resolve the ongoing trade tensions with China.
