Productivity Commission Inquiry into Transitioning Regional Economies

23 February 2017
The Alliance has identified that one of the most significant drivers to improve health and wellbeing in regional and remote communities is through unlocking the economic and social value of the 7 million people who live outside Australia’s major cities. Transitioning to new economic bases will drive regional and remote innovation and productivity forward. The Alliance believes that it is vital for regional communities to identify and support new economic bases and it is key to improving health and wellbeing – particularly for people living in remote communities, who have some of the worst health outcomes of all Australians.
