Powerful new Alliance champions regional Australia


More than 30 CEOs from the most influential peak bodies in the country have today joined forces in Canberra, for the historic launch of the National Alliance for Regionalisation.

Rebalance the Nation is a vision for more Australians to be living prosperously in the region.

At the heart of Rebalance the Nation, is the Regionalisation Ambition 2032, a framework to direct the actions of government, industry and the community to support more Australians living in our regions.

Based on 10 years of RAI research, it is a set of 20 targets across five important pillars to improve life in regional Australia so that more Australians can call the regions home.

Here we showcase the work RAI together with communities, leading Australian organisations, industry and government is doing to achieve the 2032 ambition.
