Event overview

"We are in a position of greater financial security, and we are now building on that for the benefit of future generations of this state". The Hon. Andrew Constance, NSW Treasurer, June 2014

When the NSW Budget was released in June 2014 it showed a significant turnaround in the public finances, showing a return to surplus 1 year earlier than previously forecast.

With the state's economic growth leading Australia for the first two consecutive quarters, the NSW 2014-2015 Budget outlined a forecast deficit of $283 million for the 2014-2015 financial year, before returning to a surplus of $660 million in the 2015-2016 financial year.

CEDA is pleased to welcome the NSW Treasurer, the Hon. Andrew Constance MP, to the CEDA platform to outline NSW's half-yearly economic position.

This event will examine:

  • Rebuilding NSW: what is next on the agenda for the State's once in a generation infrastructure boom;
  • How the state of NSW is tracking against the 2014-2015 budget estimates;
  • Federal financial relations and long-term health funding; and
  • The Harper Competition Policy Review and the state of NSW.

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.
