Event overview

If Australia is to regain momentum for broad-based economic reform, then better understanding what the community really cares about is a vital first step.

For those with an interest in Northern Australia, Melinda Cilento will present Community pulse 2018: the economic disconnect, the results from significant national polling exploring attitudes to work, education, health, community and the economy. She will provide an in depth look at attitudes to economic growth and development nationally and in Queensland.
