Regional Australia and agriculture



SHARE IT

Major contributor to Australia's economy and home to millions of Australians, what's ahead for Australia's regions and agricultural industry?

Regional Australia is home to 32 per cent of the population and is responsible for 67 per cent of national exports. However, the emergence of a global economy, high labour mobility, a changing resources industry, increasing infrastructure and transport requirements, and digital disruption creates challenges. Conversely, signed trade agreements are growing and opening doors for Australia while tourism is recognised as a leading and fast-growing industry.

How can the regions take advantage of such opportunity and what is in place to support future growth?
