Launch of 2015-16 State of the Regions report at Regional Cooperation and Development Forum

Reducing the inequality of income distribution within and between Australian regions through new investment will be pivotal to strengthening Australia's economy and bridging the employment fallout from the subsiding mining boom in low income regions, according to the 2015 report State of the Regions: Inequality between and within regions.

The report, the 17th in a series and produced by National Economics for the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA), presents a longitudinal narrative of the performance of Australia's regions providing a comprehensive economic analysis of every local government area in Australia.

The report will be launched in Canberra this Sunday.
