Investing in our regions
Rural and regional Victoria is home to about one-quarter of Victoria's population and plays a vital role in our prosperity. The Andrews Labor Government is investing in our regions to make sure they have the services and support they need to thrive.
Regional Victoria is the big winner in the Victorian Budget 2016-17. This Budget delivers the highest regional infrastructure investment on record.
With our investment, regional cities will start to rival Melbourne in the race for new jobs, businesses and residents. They will become renowned centres for education, and arts and culture - drawing in visitors from across the country. And they will be home to the industries of the future.
