Economic advice and support for regions

We are dedicated to strengthening regional SA

What we’ll do

A Marshall Liberal Government will ensure Regional Development Australia Boards (RDAs) are able to continue providing vital advice and support on the economic development of each region by providing $3 million in annual funding.

Under this arrangement, each board will be required to submit a four-year business plan which will encourage boards to undertake work on a wider range of cross-regional issues and economic development projects.

Why we’re doing it

A secure funding arrangement will enable the RDAs to work more effectively on behalf of their regions and enhance the valuable planning, advisory and advocacy services they provide.

That’s why we will make sure these boards have the financial certainty they need to continue to support economic development and job creation in our regions.
