South Australia's Labor cabinet will meet in the state's southeast with Premier Peter Malinauskas again talking up the importance of the region.

The premier will visit local forestry sites and business leaders on Wednesday ahead of a community cabinet forum in Mt Gambier later in the day.

That will give locals an opportunity to speak directly with cabinet ministers.

On Thursday, there will be a formal cabinet meeting with Mr Malinauskas to also visit the local TAFE college.

"The Limestone Coast plays a vital role in the economic and social fabric of our state," the premier said.

"It is sometimes said the southeast needs Adelaide, but I think it is the other way around.

"Adelaide needs the southeast. The region is a vital driver of our state's prosperity."

The cabinet's trip to the southeast comes on the back of significant election promises from Labor which included $52.5 million for the regional health system, $39 million for a new technical college in Mount Gambier and $19 million to support the state's forestry industry.

The government also promised to invest in the local lobster and livestock industries, establish a Cross Border Commissioner to support the region's interests and upgrade local roads.
