Regional Development Australia Goldfields Esperance
Regional Development Australia (RDA) is an initiative of the Australian Government that aims to enhance the growth and development of regional areas by bringing together the three levels of government (Federal, State and Local) to provide a strategic and targeted response to issues in regional areas.
RDA Goldfields Esperance is one of 55 committees representing regional areas across Australia.
The Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development is the Hon. Michael McCormack, serving since 26 February 2018. He has overall responsibility for RDA, whereas Hon. Andrew Broad, Assistant Minister to the Deputy Minister, will have responsibility for the administration of the RDA Program. This will see Minister Broad take the day to day lead on RDA issues.
The new Charter for Regional Development Australia was released in August 2017 and outlines a new direction for RDA's across Australia.
