Regional Development Australia (RDA) is a national network of committees made up of local leaders who work with all levels of government, business and community groups to support and broker economic development opportunities for their regions. The Australian Government recently announced a strengthening of the network through the implementation of a new charter (attached) and 4.5 year Funding Agreement to 30 June 2025. This commitment positions the RDA network as the Commonwealth’s primary regional development engagement body, working with state and local government to support economic growth in Australia’s regions.
