Skilled Labour, FDI Strategy Encourage Property Investment in Perth
In its annual Global Cities of the Future report, fDi Magazine ranked Perth 5th in human capital in the large cities category and 16th in overall FDI strategy. Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi pointed to the city’s active roles in the global economy as partly the reason for Perth’s recent success. One of these is that of Perth being one of the 19 “energy cities” recognised by the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP), and being the only Australian member at that. Energy cities facilitate exchange of information regarding new energy-related opportunities to facilitate various functions like education, food processing, and medicine.
