Event overview

A recent Deloitte Access Economics report shows Asia's impact on Australia is changing in ways that play to NSW's economic strengths across five key sectors - tourism, international education, wealth management, gas and agribusiness - and by promoting these five industries the Australian economy could grow by $250 billion over 20 years.

Responding to a growing global population, international trade in agriculture could drive extraordinary growth and opportunities for Australian businesses.

Last December, the Federal Government commissioned a White Paper to examine the competitiveness of Australia's agricultural industry and outline a strategy to improve profitability of the agricultural sector and boost its contribution to economic growth.

The CEDA forum will examine issues including:

  • NSW agricultural industry - policy settings to encourage economic growth;
  • Industry response to the Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper;
  • Structural reform to encourage the flow of capital and investment; and
  • Impacts and opportunities of Australia's free trade agreements with regional neighbours such as China, Japan, India and Indonesia.

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.
