CEDA's Regional Competitive Advantage Forum 2014 brings together government and business for a robust discussion about the optimal ways regions can develop competitive advantage and how businesses can develop comparative advantage through knowledge, resources, skills and innovation.

This event will explore:

  • The New South Wales Government's commitment to continued regional development;
  • The barriers to doing business in regional New South Wales;
  • Key determinates of long-term regional economic growth - innovation, access to international, national and regional market places and developing sustainable communities; and

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 remains true to its purpose of providing platforms to inform and promote debate of critical issues and driving policy solutions and are continuing critical discussions for Australia’s economic, social and environmental development through a digital events program including exclusive livestreams, podcasts and video, as well as our virtual Trustee roundtable discussions.

CEDA is also moving to deliver hybrid events that include a livestream and a small audience in attendance. CEDA has worked with venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers adhere to government guidelines.
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 act on relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
