Regional development is fundamentally about the people who live, work and invest in our regions. It is about the community and economies in these regions, and how they contribute to a growing and sustainable future for all Western Australians. This Regional Development Framework represents the desire of the nine Regional Development Commissions and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development to achieve meaningful outcomes for regional WA by collaborating, coordinating and aligning actions that draw on our collective expertise and are tailored for regional difference.
