Western Australia's current resources boom provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to develop a skilled workforce that will create new industries and jobs for the future.
However, this is not happening, with Premier Colin Barnett allowing our big resources companies to send their engineering and fabrication work offshore.
With most of the engineering for our major projects now being done overseas, WA engineers have to uproot themselves and their families and go overseas if they want to help design the projects.
There is a core engineering capability that is draining because the design of our Australian LNG resources is going overseas. This brain drain leaves our young engineers without senior people to learn from, with this potentially creating a serious long term skills problem across Western Australia's engineering industry.
