Centenary Celebrations

As part of the ABS Centenary Celebrations the ABS WA hosted a function for our major clients and the highly valued members of the Economic and Social Statistics Consultative Groups and the State Statistical Policy Committee.

Alan Hubbard, Government Statistician and Regional Director of the ABS WA welcomed the guests with a brief history of the ABS.

The function included a “Welcome to Country”, the traditional welcome from the Indigenous people of this region which was warmly received by the attendees and presented by Beryl Harp, of the Balladong people.

Steve Zubrick (Telethon Institute of Child Health Research) and Ken Houghton (Department of Health and Ageing), delivered glowing tributes to Chris Spencer who was attending his final function as the Director of the Client Services Branch of the ABS WA.
