$4 billion for the regions.

Victoria is booming – more jobs were created here in the past year than in the rest of Australia combined.

The Victorian Government is making sure that every Victorian shares in the benefit of our success – and that starts in our regions.

We’re making sure our regional cities, towns and rural communities have the infrastructure and services they need to thrive.
