Overview

A key role of the RDA Tasmania Committee is to improve Commonwealth regional policy-making by providing intelligence and evidence-based advice to the Australian Government on regional development issues.

To do this, we ask for your feedback on the following questions. These questions reflect the Australian Government's six (6) regional priorities.
 
The Australian Government identified 6 regional priorities as follows:

  • Connectivity and infrastructure. Digital connectivity, transport links, freight and supply chain infrastructure.
  • Human capital and skills. To provide skilled and adaptable workforces, regional Universities, and training and schooling.
  • Regional employment and business. To develop regional business and industry, local R&D and innovation and a strategic regional vision.
  • Leadership and collaboration. By investing in regional leadership, capable local government and the indigenous community.
  • Amenity and liveability. Providing services, facilities and liveability, and support for local priorities.
  • Sustainable natural resources. To build future resilience, ensure sustainable foundations, and provide economic opportunities and jobs.
 
We invite you to reflect on your region or sector to provide your understanding of local conditions in terms of these priorities. Your participation in this survey will help shape the future direction of planning, development, and advice to the government, and provide a deeper analysis of current conditions in Tasmanian regions. 

We will share the collated feedback with stakeholders who complete the survey.
