CEDA promotes Australia’s economic development in a sustainable and socially balanced way
CEDA - the Committee for Economic Development of Australia
- is a national, independent, member-based organisation
providing thought leadership and policy perspectives on the
economic and social issues affecting Australia.
We achieve this through a rigorous and evidence-based research
agenda, and forums and events that deliver lively debate and
CEDA's expanding membership includes around 800 of Australia's
leading businesses and organisations, and leaders from a wide
cross-section of industries and academia. It allows us to reach
major decision makers across the private and public sectors.
CEDA is an independent not-for-profit organisation, founded
in 1960 by leading Australian economist Sir Douglas
Copland. Our funding comes from membership fees, events,
research grants and sponsorship.
CEDA advances Australia's economic development by:
- engaging the brightest minds in the search for the best policy
- informing our members on long-term economic,business and policy
- identifying business best practices, enabling leaders to make
- influencing policy making with independent ideas delivered in
an understandable, accessible format.
CEDA Research and Policy is independent and collaborative. We
engage the brightest minds to come up with the best ideas for
improving Australia's economy.
CEDA Research and Policy produces a range of reports each year
on issues fundamental to Australia's economic development.
CEDA members are well connected and well informed on economic,
business and public policy issues. Around 800 of Australia's
leading organisations belong to CEDA.
CEDA is an independent and open forum - through events,
briefings and policy forums - for business, government and academia
to come together to discuss Australia's future.
We facilitate better public policy and consequently better
outcomes for Australia's economy.
Our independence and track record differentiates us from other
organisations with a voice in the public policy debate.
CEDA research and forums are used by business, politicians,
policymakers and economic commentators.
