Regions Rising - NSW

Regions Rising - NSW

Regions Rising NSW - Orange

RAI's flagship national event series is coming to Orange, with Regions Rising - NSW to be held Thursday 16 November.

As millions of metro Australians look to make the move to the regions, this regional renaissance brings with it opportunities and challenges.

Join RAI CEO Liz Ritchie in Orange where she will unveil the Institute's Regionalisation Ambition 2032 first progress report, and what it means for NSW.

Regions Rising - NSW will provide government, industry and regional leaders with the RAI's insights into the unique settings facing this part of regional Australia.

The Regionalisation Ambition 2032 places 20 targets to strengthen our regions and close the divide between life in the city and the country - focusing on issues around housing, education, health and childcare.

We are delighted to host Minister for Agriculture, Minister for Regional NSW and Minister for Western NSW, the Hon. Tara Moriarty MLC, where she will deliver a keynote address.

We'd like to thank our Regions Rising National Series Partner, Elders and nbn Co., and event partner Inland Rail for helping bring our #RegionsRising series to life!
