Event overview

Investment in productivity-enhancing infrastructure must be a priority in Australia's economic growth agenda.

At this event, CEDA will address the key challenge of national economic reform with regard to the provision of infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing population. Policy and industry leaders will address the infrastructure gap and explore incentives for greater public and private collaboration that incentivises investment and innovation.

This event will coincide with CEDA's research release of Australia's economic future - an agenda for growth. This research will advance a range of policy reforms that Australia's next federal parliament should adopt - in the areas of innovation, infrastructure, employment, government and climate change - to kick-start a new agenda for growth.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Australia's economic future - an agenda for growth.

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.
