Regional Australia Summit

November 1999 - Regional Australia SummitDon't listen to Hanrahan. Listen to journalists and pundits explaining recent election results and you would think there was no optimism left in the bush. Our contributors take a different view. Where others see threats, they see opportunities. There's no need for any to fear ruin. The Commonwealth Government's Regional Australia Summit heard an optimistic message from a range of speakers. These articles are by some of the participants.
