WA Premier Mark McGowan said the figures were "encouraging".

"They show that our economy is bouncing back more quickly than any other state in Australia … but it's a long road ahead," Mr McGowan said.

"I expect high unemployment will be with us for a period of time to come, but we're doing everything that we can to get businesses back, to get people into the workforce and get economic activity happening."
