Sydney’s population alone is expected to reach 7.1 million by 2041. Is there a way to balance our population? Does the government need to put in more work into policies to grow regional populations?
We’re discussing Australia’s population with Professor Amanda Davies along with Fiona Simson, President of the National Farmers Federation.
