    Commerce Minister Simon O’Brien today announced the finalists of the 2012 Western Australian Industry and Export Awards.

    Mr O’Brien said this year’s finalists came from a variety of sectors but all had one thing in common - they were achieving exceptional results at home and overseas.

    “The WA Industry and Export Awards help to acknowledge and thank individual companies for the role they play in the community and their contribution to the State’s economy,” he said.

    “While the State’s resources sector is often the focus, it is pleasing to see a range of companies from manufacturing, service, medical and science also represented.
