Recovery: coming back better


A CEDA series to explore what recovery will look like for our economy and the longer term growth agenda.
To explore the economic recovery out of the COVID-19 crisis, CEDA has launched the Recovery: coming back better series. Using its network and experience during this period, CEDA is exploring new and innovative policy opportunities and options that go further than the usual tool kit of existing policy solutions.

To restart Australia's economy, we are going to need a broad economic agenda that incorporates innovative policy solutions to drive investment in these unusual times and drive the economic activity and job creation needed following the COVID-19 health and economic crises.

Revised research agenda

To explore these policy reforms and address the issues that have fallen out of the COVID-19 pandemic, CEDA has revised its 2020 research agenda.

The pandemic has changed governments’ policy priorities and the nation’s economic priorities. As such CEDA's 2020 research agenda will also incorporate a focus on four topics that will be published through a series of short research papers, blogs and interactive livestreams in the months ahead.

The aim of our research agenda refocus is to encourage long term discussion and debate on the policy settings necessary to secure future economic and social development.

As part of this series, CEDA will explore:

Continuing our planned 2020 research agenda

The themes underpinning our planned research reports for 2020 – data, Community Pulse, immigration and disadvantage – remain important and work will continue on these themes. CEDA will monitor and assess the economic policy environment in the coming months with a view to advancing the topics we had planned in 2020.
