The Business Council says the upcoming Federal Budget will be one of the most important in our nation's history and must unlock the potential of regional Australia.

As part of its submission to the Federal Government, the BCA is calling for investment in the regions to be ramped-up as part of a post-COVID recovery.

Key measures include the identification of regional locations that will deliver new projects that maximise economic and community benefits.

BCA Chief Executive, Jennifer Westacott, says every dollar spent must focus on new jobs, while delivering new infrastructure and population growth in our regions.
