The Adroit Regional Business Survey provides valuable insight into the mindset of regional Victorian businesses and their outlook for FY 16/17.

The results of the Regional Business Survey show that the regional Victorian economy is growing and that this is having a positive impact on those surveyed, despite indicators that respondents were unsatisfied with support from the Victorian Government.
