The theme for the 2015 Building Regional Australia Summit is ‘Building Regional Australia through Infrastructure Partnerships’, and is designed to bring together communities, businesses and politicians, who will provide information on how to access abd enhance the infrastructure in each local government area. Regional development issues are also on the program.

“It is a great opportunity for communities and businesses alike to create ties to build working relationships into the future,” CEO Peter Bailey says. “By coming together in a centrally located country city, the people involved in growing our great nation can crowd-source ideas from each other, show innovative new practices and implement what they learn.”
