What's in the RED Toolbox?
The Regional Economic Development (RED) Toolbox is a national platform for supporting smart, connected and sustainable regional economic development. Australia’s economic future depends on the foundation of our productive industries – agriculture, creative industry, defence, manufacturing, medical & health, METS, smart trades and tourism.
We need more exporters in Australia. We need to increase the value of the goods and services we sell. We need to collaborate actively, and share examples of what works and what doesn’t more quickly and widely.
