Regional Development Australia

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Committees are made up of local people creating local opportunities.

These local leaders work with all levels of government, business and community groups to support the economic development of their regions.

RDA Committees are active facilitators in their communities, with a clear focus on growing strong and confident regional economies that harness their competitive advantages, seize on economic opportunity, and attract investment.

RDA Committees also support the successful implementation of the Australian Government's Regional Investment Framework (RIF), which will guide a more coordinated approach to regional development, underpinned by local engagement.

Every RDA Committee is guided by the Regional Development Australia Charter
