Alina Bain comes to RDA following an extensive career interstate and overseas as a lawyer, policy advocate, and executive.  Alina’s role is to develop and deliver a Strategic Regional Plan for the economic development of Tasmania. Her focus will be engaging with RDA’s stakeholders across Federal and State Government, local government and industry to inform and shape her work on the Strategic Regional Plan.
