Memorandum of Understanding

On 17 January 2018, the Prime Minister and the Acting Premier of Victoria signed a Memorandum of Understanding, committing to work together on City Deals.

Geelong City Deal

Victoria’s first City Deal will be for Geelong. The Australian and Victorian governments will work together with local government partners to negotiate the City Deal over the coming months.

A Geelong City Deal will harness the strengths and opportunities in the local economy to help to deliver new jobs and make the area an ever better place to live and work. Areas of focus will include improved transport links in the region, revitalising the Geelong city centre, ensuring the Great Ocean Road reaches its full potential, and supporting innovation and the growth of knowledge industries.
