Deal or no deal? Bringing small cities into the national cities agenda

Policy Online carries a link (26.4.16) to a Regional Australia Institute report which argues that small regional cities should be factored into the federal government’s planning as part of its ‘Smart Cities’ economic and development agenda.

‘The Deal or No Deal? report highlights that Australia’s small cities are strong performers economically, but if we look under the bonnet there are some essential ingredients that enable small cities to succeed and grow consistently over time.

‘… For our small cities to continue their strong economic performance and be the linchpin in future national productivity they need a future built on city success and growth. Keys to success are about turning challenges into opportunities and delivering on potential.’
