Text Size a a a Print Print this page

The Federal-State Relations Unit is part of the Policy and Reform division and leads Western Australia's engagement with the Commonwealth and other States and Territories to:

  • strengthen the Western Australian Government's inter-jurisdictional relationships;
  • drive collaboration across Western Australian Government on WA's Federal-State policy priorities;
  • achieve better outcomes for Western Australians in relation to WA's Federal-State policy priorities; and
  • coordinate Commonwealth-State arrangements for WA to provide services to the Indian Ocean Territories.

The Federal-State Relations Unit coordinates WA's involvement in the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) and the Council for the Australian Federation (CAF).


Acknowledgement of Country
