South Australia’s regions contribute about $25.5 billion each year to the state’s economy, and produce around half of our state’s merchandise exports.
Recognising the important role South Australia’s regions play in the state’s economic success, an annual Regional Summit is hosted by the State Government in partnership with South Australia’s leading universities to gain independent, expert advice on regional policy.
The summit provides a valuable forum for engagement in ideas for regional economic growth and the development of potential opportunities in employment, skills and education. It forms part of the Government’s commitment to regional South Australia as outlined in the Charter for Stronger Regional Policy.
While the summit is held in a different location each year, the themes and speakers are relevant statewide, with a distinctly regional flavour.
The Regional Summit is a State Government initiative, hosted by the Department of State Development and Primary Industries and Regions SA.
