Event overview

Building a robust and sustainable future will require economic diversification within the Western Australian economy which expands beyond our minerals and resources strength.

How do we further capitalise on our location in this Asian Century and create an international hub for knowledge and investment? What does business require of governments and what investment is needed to build the State's other industries, such as agriculture, construction, education and culture?

CEDA's Shaping WA: 2030 half-day forum utilises its independent platform to bring some of the brightest minds together to discuss future directions of WA, outside of current political cycles.

What strategies are required to enable the State to continue to grow and strengthen economically and socially for our future generations? What will be our legacy?

Join CEDA for our annual future proofing session that will help shape Western Australia's vision and its pathway to success.
