The Coalition Government welcomes the Select Committee on Regional Development and Decentralisation report ‘Regions at the Ready: Investing in Australia’s Future' which was tabled in Parliament today.

This important report is the result of many months of consultation with communities across regional and rural Australia which sought to find best practice approaches to regional economic development and decentralisation.

Strengthening rural, regional and remote communities, creating jobs and delivering a stronger economy for the long term is a key focus of the Coalition's plan for regional Australia.

The Government will consider the report's recommendations and respond in due course.
