Department of State Development
The new Department of State Development provides a strong focus on strategic development of Western Australia, particularly major state development projects and strategic economic development policy. This department also incorporates the functions of the Office of Development Approvals Coordination, which was within the Department of Premier and Cabinet.
Department of Commerce
The Science and Innovation functions of the Department of Industry and Resources (DoIR) have been transfered to the new Department of Commerce, which incorporates the Department of Consumer and Employment Protection. Functions that have been transfered from DoIR include Innovative Industries, Science and Enterprise and Aboriginal Economic Development.
