Regional Development Australia Charter
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 the economic development of the regions.

- Facilitate regional economic development outcomes, investment, local procurement and jobs
- Promote greater regional awareness of and engagement with Australian Government policies, grant programs and research
- Improve Commonwealth regional policy making by providing intelligence and evidence-based advice to the Australian Government on regional development issues
