Business hubs to move from metro to rural regions in Australia

This petition had 8 supporters

The majority of small communities and towns in rural and remote Australia have lost business hubs and employers. The local governments are attempting to fill every hole in the dyke from human services demands to employing everyone possible in the region. Shop fronts are empty, streets are empty, and yet devoted local people buy multiple businesses to keep the doors open.

 Given the advances in technology, the majority of business hubs could operate anywhere with remote access.  Why aren't we providing incentives for companies to move out of the metro centres, not just to the larger regional sites, but to the rural and remote regions?

Sadly many young people in these communities are choosing to not engage in education an expressing hopelessness at any chance of employment in their future. This simple strategy could re-invigorate these communities, provide employment options to the local residents, draw in other services, and most of all spread the wealth into the rural and remote regions of Australia.
