Posted February 07, 2020 07:08:58 It’s hard to imagine a world without the rural economy, yet it’s also difficult to imagine an economy without the industry.
The vast majority of our land is used for agriculture, while the majority of the agricultural products we buy and consume come from the rural sector.
As the economy shifts towards urban centres, it’s not surprising that rural Australia is seeing an explosion of new development opportunities.
The biggest beneficiary of these new developments is the rural community.
They are vital to our economy, our jobs and our wellbeing.
A new report from the Australian Rural Development Council (ARDC) looks at how the development of the industry has been influenced by the state and territory governments, as well as key stakeholders.
What the ARDC found The report looked at the impact of the major development and development funding decisions made in Australia over the past three decades.
There were many factors influencing the growth of the rural population.
The first is the Federal Government’s decision to build the National Broadband Network in the late 1990s.
This led to a major increase in the population of the state, which increased demand for land and farmland.
The second is the state’s policy of subsidising rural development.
In 1996, the Federal Parliament passed the Rural Development and Agricultural Infrastructure Bill which required that states and territories be given the power to fund rural development projects through a range of government grants.
In addition, this provided the states and territory with the opportunity to receive the funding for their development.
The ARDC report analysed these decisions and found that the state government was key to the growth in rural development in the 2000s.
In fact, the state has the highest level of investment in rural infrastructure in Australia, followed by the Territory and the Australian Capital Territory.
The report also found that federal funding of the sector was one of the key factors driving the growth, with more than $6.6 billion in funding allocated between 1995 and 2020.
The Commonwealth Government allocated $6 billion over the same period.
The State Governments contribution was also high, with $2.2 billion being provided through the Rural Housing Infrastructure Program, and another $2 billion through the Aboriginal Land Infrastructure Program.
This made up nearly 20 per cent of the total state funding allocated for rural development during the period.
Overall, the ARCC found that while the Federal government’s decision led to significant growth in the rural industry, the State Government was key in creating the industry and was instrumental in supporting the development industry.
While the rural communities that are the backbone of the economy have benefited the most from the development sector, the overall impact of government support has been minimal.
The ARCC’s report found that in recent years, the Government’s focus has shifted away from funding the rural land sector.
Instead, they have been focusing on the wider infrastructure sector, particularly the NBN.
This has resulted in a number of measures that aim to support development in rural areas.
The Government is also considering a number options for supporting the industry, including a carbon price, a land value tax, a property tax, and other measures.
In some cases, these proposals may have unintended consequences.
The Federal Government will need to come to terms with the fact that the rural and small-scale land sectors are dependent on the Federal land grant and that its support may no longer be the best way to achieve the goals of development in Australia.
The main areas of concern in the ARSC report include the Federal Governments failure to provide sufficient funding for the rural infrastructure sector and the Government of Tasmania’s refusal to provide enough support to its rural infrastructure projects.
In the long-term, it is the impact on the rural landscape that will determine whether the rural environment remains as vibrant as it is today.
