RCA recently lodged a 2017-18 Federal Budget submission calling for new and existing funding programs that will allow regional capital cities to be connected and liveable.
Regional capital cities can play a critical role in the future prosperity of Australia. To ensure that the most is made of the opportunities available in regional economies, RCA has called on the government to adopt funding streams that will allow our cities to be:
- Connected – with high speed broadband, roads, rail, ports and airports; and
- Liveable – with local access to tertiary education, health, sporting facilities, arts, and culture centres.
