Offical Head Shot

Minister for Regional Development, Senator the Hon Fiona Nash, has launched the Government's policy for rural, regional and remote Australia: Regions 2030: Unlocking Opportunity.

The Regions 2030 statement outlines the government's vision for regional Australia and the key initiatives helping to achieve that vision through investment and activity across five areas:

  • jobs and economic development
  • infrastructure
  • health
  • education
  • communications.

Senator Nash said that Australia’s regions power Australia’s economy.

“Investing in our regions is essential for Australia—strong regions mean a strong nation,” she said.

“A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to developing regional policy does not work. Regions 2030 focuses on working with communities to meet their economic and social needs, which will help to improve life for rural, regional and remote Australians.”

A copy of the full policy statement is available on the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development website.

Senator Nash will address delegates at both the Regional Cooperation and Development Forum, and the National General Assembly of Local Government. These events will be held in Canberra next month from 18 – 21 June 2017. Registrations are still open.
