The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development aims to protect, grow and innovate in our primary industries and regions in Western Australia. We work collaboratively with the public and private sectors to meet these priorities and are committed to measuring, reviewing and improving our performance.

DPIRD is currently working towards our Stategic Intent 2018-21 that outlines the department’s purpose, role, strategic priorities and key initiatives over the next three years.

Our performance in meeting our priorities and state government goals is outlined in our department’s annual report.
