CEDA – State of the Nation ’17
May 31, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
State of the Nation is Australia’s premier public policy discussion forum, bringing together decision makers and leaders from government, business, industry and community organisations for an intensive, day-and-a-half of presentations and discussions on Australia’s future prosperity.
For more than 35 years CEDA has hosted its annual State of the Nation conference in Canberra. Each year the conference brings together the best public policy minds from politics, business, academia and community organisations for open discussions on the key issues facing Australia’s economic and social development.
Described in the media as “Australia’s premier policymaker conference”, State of the Nation attracts ministers and shadow ministers, public servants, commentators and industry analysts for an insider’s view of the Federal Government’s policies. Participants discuss issues directly with speakers and other attendees, and engage in networking opportunities.
Australia has enjoyed 25 years of consecutive economic growth. But with increased global competition, geopolitical uncertainty, industry upheaval, rising inequality and stifled economic reform, will Australia be able to continue its golden run?
In CEDA’s 2017 State of the Nation conference we will examine:
- How our high-performing companies compete in the global marketplace;
- How we can set up our growth sectors for success; and
- How to improve economic security in times of change and uncertainty.
