The Government is committed to empowering regional Australia to reach its full potential and become even stronger and more sustainable in the years ahead.

The 2011‑12 Budget supports strong, resilient and creative regional communities through measures targeting health, education and skills, workforce participation, infrastructure, environmental sustainability and improved delivery of government services.

These measures build on the Government's record of investment in regional communities, with the Government recognising that strong, prosperous regions are essential for a strong, prosperous Australia.

That is why the Government has made investing in regional Australia a priority for this Budget even as we face the challenge of bringing the budget back to surplus by 2012‑13.

In short, the Government is investing today to secure a sustainable future, including through building the infrastructure that regional Australia needs.
