WA economic update paints a grim picture

Treasurer Ben Wyatt is warning the impact on WA’s finances, from the coronavirus downturn, will be significant.

Economic growth for this financial year will be much smaller than previously forecast with a contraction for the 2020/21 financial year.

He says latest figures suggest there’ll be a five percent contraction for the June quarter alone.
