    Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:

     

    "The WA Industry and Export Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the breadth and diversity of the State's business community.

     

    "While the winning companies are vastly different in industry, focus and size, they all share a commitment to be the best in their field and create jobs and opportunities for Western Australians.

     

    "For the export category winners who now go on to represent the State at the national awards, I wish them the very best of luck and have no doubt that they will do Western Australia proud."
