The Nationals plan for regional Australia is built on strong economic management and a fair share for the regions.
As the one party dedicated to the one third of Australians who make their homes, work or business in the regions, our concern for the future increases every day Labor remains in Government.
Our first priority in government will be to restore the Budget surplus and repay the huge debt Labor has amassed.
We will put an end to Labor’s reckless spending, and secure a fair share of investment in regional Australia.
We want to ensure that all Australians have fair access to services like health and education and critical infrastructure such as good roads and telecommunications to truly unlock regional Australia’s potential.
As Nationals, we commit ourselves to delivering a fair go for all Australians – no matter where you live.
For the 2010 election The Nationals adopted a policy platform comprising 15 plans. This was built on at The Nationals Federal Council meeting in August 2011 when it was agreed to incorporate a further 5 plans into the platform. The 20 plans now form the basis of The Nationals Policy Platform for the 2013 Federal Election.
This is a living document and we welcome feedback from Party members, members of the public, industry, business, employee and professional organizations.
