Event overview


epo2014For more than 30 years CEDA's Economic and Political Overview (EPO) forums and report have been important resources for business to inform and support their strategic planning for the year ahead.

The EPO brings together leading national and state commentators to provide an in-depth analysis of the key milestones and potential influences on the political and economic landscape for the year ahead.

The political scene for 2014 will be particularly intriguing with the new federal Government tackling its election promises and releasing its first budget in May, and significant changes to the Senate in June; together with the Tasmanian state election in the first half of the year. It is sure to be an interesting year and one which will keep business and economic analysts on their toes.

The 2014 EPO report will provide its usual high level political and economic evaluation, and will include papers on three key areas impacting growth:

  • The productivity of government;
  • Doing business from Australia; and
  • Red tape /green tape and the need for a consistent deregulatory agenda.

A must-attend forum for all those whose business can be impacted by the swings and roundabouts of economic and political decisions. Join CEDA for the best and most concise analysis for 2014.
