Our cities—regional and metropolitan – are where most Australians live and where most of the nation’s economic output is produced.

On 20 September 2015 the Prime Minister, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, announced cities as a national priority for the Australian Government. 

To succeed in the 21st Century economy our cities need to be liveable, accessible and productive. Great cities attract, retain and develop increasingly mobile talent and organisations, encouraging them to innovate, create jobs and support growth.

The Smart Cities Plan is another way the Government is building an agile, innovative and prosperous nation.
