Event overview

Australia has achieved something that no other industrialised country in the world has; 22 years of continuous growth.

With the right policy settings this economic expansion could continue for another decade. However, without major reforms aimed at improving the nation's international competitiveness the normalisation of the terms of trade will reduce Australia's living standards.

CEDA's major research and policy project for 2013, Australia Adjusting: Optimising national prosperity puts forward a comprehensive reform agenda for an open and adaptive economy to enhance its economic flexibility, improve its capacity to innovate and maximise the potential of its human capital.

Join CEDA to hear from report authors and discuss the reforms recommended to drive sustained improvement to Australia's productivity and help achieve another decade of economic growth.

Public event advice – Coronavirus

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
