The costs of doing business in the Pilbara are far higher than the rest of WA and most of Australia. This is a constraint to starting new businesses, operating successfully as an existing enterprise and it discourages diversification. 

The RDA study is viewed as an important contribution to analysing the cost of doing business in the Pilbara. The intent is to compile a cost of doing business profile for each major centre in the Pilbara region. The results and conclusions will be used to inform businesses of cost structure and future costs to improve planning and operations; inform government agencies about costs so that policy formulation cen be adjusted to take the high costs into account.
