And Revealing How You Can Make It Happen!
Regional communities around Australia have seen challenging times over recent years, impacted heavily by the global economic downturn and rapid change in operating environments including technology, demographics and the new digital economy.
There is also a growing sense of urgency and optimism that now is the time to capitalise on our regions’ enormous economic, social and lifestyle opportunities and innovative capacity.
Regional Australia’s critical role in the achieving the broader national economic agenda is also receiving greater recognition.
“This Government recognises the role regional areas can, and must play, in overcoming Australia's national challenges and driving economic development as well as building stronger regional communities.”
The Hon Warren Truss MP, Minister for Infrastructure & Regional Development, 5 March 2014
Transformation through Demonstration
The key to enhancing the vitality of our regional cities, towns and localities will be designing and delivering local infrastructure and catalyst projects that support their region’s long-term growth. Driving this new era of regional prosperity requires renewed regional leadership focus and innovative capacity.
Regionally embedded innovation processes will equip regions to manage a future of constant change, variables and unknowns. New governance and business models are needed to ensure project vitality.
Successful regional investment in infrastructure and catalyst developments will need inspired and innovative cross organisational and multi disciplinary collaboration. Projects will need to be multi-dimensional in their approaches across government, business, not for profits and other stakeholder groups to achieve engagement for local business, education, health and lifestyle sectors.
“The challenge is to find a development pathway that is fast, efficient and cost effective.”
