Edith Cowan University (1996). High growth maritime industries: Recent successes and major opportunities for Western Australia. Perth, Australia: Edith Cowan University.


There are indications that the maritime industry in Western Australia is currently insufficiently serviced by the tertiary sector in terms of its educational needs. Thus, in May 1995 a Maritime Industry Taskforce was formed to investigate opportunities for further development of maritime industries in Western Australia and around the Indian Ocean Rim. Following months of discussion with government agencies, industry and tertiary education providers, it was considered opportune to conduct a seminar to bring these areas together to openly explore key issues in building upon successes already achieved. The seminar included speakers from each of the areas of government, industry and education in Western Australia as well as the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University, Newfoundland, Canada, and the Australian Maritime College, Launceston, who identified some international and national maritime industry successes.
