Western Australia's Minister for Transport and Planning, the Hon. Rita Saffioti MLA, is transforming the state by planning transport projects that deliver better mobility and economic benefits. She's particularly proud of the local rail car manufacturing policy which she wrote in opposition and is now implementing as part of Perth's Metronet project, she explains to host Michelle Batsas. She encourages women to join public transport to gain skills in a range of areas from engineering, signalling, driving heavy vehicles to customer service, that can also be transferred to other sectors such as mining and agriculture. For her, the key to success is focusing on work that makes you happy and being genuine.
