South Australia boasts an extraordinary wealth of diversity in its regions.
From the lush pastures of the South-East to the endless plains of the Outback, from the pristine beauty of Kangaroo Island to the industrial muscle of the Upper Spencer Gulf, from cropping country to the mighty Murray – country South Australia is filled with opportunity.
The Australian Labor Party understands the regions and their importance to the state.
The State Labor Government has backed the agricultural sector to grow production and exports by lowering business costs, supporting research and development, opening trade routes and building a stronger value-add chain of food and fibre processors.
We have stood up for the Murray and the needs of SA irrigators and tourism operators and protected the environment.
We have led the nation in initiatives such as the Plan for Accelerating Exploration (PACE), facilitating mining and energy projects and creating jobs in regional areas.
We will ensure the commercial fisheries sector has a long-term, sustainable future while also improving access for recreational fishing.
Labor listens to the community which is why regional residents are welcome to participate in Country Labor SA.
With regular meetings in regional areas and a biennial conference, Country Labor SA gives members the opportunity to shape policies and to build Labor’s presence in the regions.
If you are a country person (whether you live in the country or not) Country Labor invites you to be a part of the action.
