The Nationals have officially launched their push to move more quality public service jobs out of Canberra and into the regions, as part of its Get Out Of The City campaign.

Leader Barnaby Joyce says decentralisation isn’t only an economic boost for regional cities like Wagga, which recently welcomed news of the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation relocating to C.S.U. from Canberra.

Mr Joyce says decentralisation not only boosts the economies of regional areas, there are substantial public service savings, the R.I.R.D.C move saving taxpayers $1.2 Million per year.
