Excitement for think-tank's potential

The nation’s first independent think-tank, entirely devoted to policy issues impacting regional Australia, was launched at Parliament House in Canberra on Tuesday.
The idea behind the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) evolved during the 2010 negotiations with key rural independents Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor, to form the current minority Federal government.

The concept was included in the independent’s written agreement with Prime Minister Julia Gillard - the $10 billion deal for regional Australia.

They are now excited about its possibilities.

Mr Windsor said the RAI represented a significant opportunity to address issues facing country people and would now conduct research to address a lack of basic information on country areas and flesh out specific issues in an objective way.
