Hon Rob Kerin
Regional Development South Australia Chair
Regional Development South Australia is chaired by the Hon Rob Kerin, former Premier and former Minister for Primary Industries, Mines and Energy and Regional Development.
RDSA is a member-based, not-for-profit Incorporated Association that plays a unique role in supporting the economic development efforts of seven South Australian based RDAs, as well as the Adelaide Metropolitan RDA.
Each RDA is a member of RDSA, and come together to collaborate on a variety of cross-regional issues and economic development projects that are fundamental to the future and well-being of South Australia.
The Hon Rob Kerin, former Premier and Deputy Premier, and former Minister for Primary Industries, Mines and Energy and Regional Development is the independent Chair of RDSA, appointed by RDSA Members.
The ability to collaborate and advocate as a single state-wide voice through RDSA puts South Australian RDAs in a unique position, as no other state or territory operates under this model. This provides benefits back to regional communities, to local Government in progressing broad development issues and to State and Federal Governments in developing cohesive place and evidence-based policies.
