2018 Economic and Political Overview in Townsville

2018 Economic and Political Overview in Townsville

CEDA’s Economic and Political Overview is Australia's premier national publication and series of briefings on the year ahead. 


Dr Jim Chalmers, Federal Shadow Minister for Finance

Event overview

CEDA again presents this premier national event in Townsville in 2018.  CEDA’s Economic and Political Overview provides trusted political analysis, economic forecasts and the full picture for your work in 2018.

Across sectors and across Queensland there are high expectations of 2018, pressurising demand for good public policy and better economic outcomes.  Government and business strategy is increasingly reliant on information accuracy, data mining and digital intelligence; tools which are redefining stakeholder, customer and voter influence.

Against this backdrop the 2018 EPO lunch in Townsville convenes senior national economists and leading data analysts and thinkers to present their insights into 2018.

Gather your colleagues and guests and be briefed on the operating environment ahead and participate in an important discussion of regional and national matters in Townsville.

All attendees will receive a copy of CEDA's 2018 EPO report.

(In addition to the EPO lunch in Townsville on Friday 23 February, CEDA will present the 2018 EPO forum in Brisbane on Friday 16 February.)
