STATE of Australian Cities 2010 has been released by the Australian Government today. Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Anthony Albanese formally released the report today at the Queensland Media Club.
In his speech, Mr Albanese states that "given the Australian Government's primary role in economic policy, infrastructure provision and social welfare it is clear that a national framework can only be achieved by a national collaborative approach." He also states that "urban policy does not detract from this Government's recognition of regional and rural Australia."
