About Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC- Minister for Regional Development; Agriculture and Food; Hydrogen Industry

Alannah MacTiernan is WA’s Minister for Regional Development, Agriculture and Food and Hydrogen Industry.

As Minister for Planning and Infrastructure from 2001 to 2008, Ms MacTiernan was responsible for major projects across the State which required a change of thinking that was more than just building infrastructure but was a whole vision of a networked city, including the Mandurah rail line, the Forrest Highway, the Geraldton port and rail expansion and the Armadale town centre and Champion Lakes developments.

The Minister understands the unique role of government as an enabler of development and is committed to growing economic opportunities in our regional areas as well as bringing WA's agricultural sector into the 21st century through innovation with a focus on long-term planning and investing in research science.

She champions opportunities to support agricultural development, innovation, accelerate emissions reduction, and create new long term job opportunities, particularly in regional Western Australia.

Since coming to office in 2017, Minister MacTiernan has been instrumental in driving the establishment of a renewable hydrogen industry in Western Australia.
