OVERVIEW

The world economy is facing unprecedented change in 2012. Extensive global economic upheaval and uncertainty will present major challenges for growth in Australia.  The country successfully navigated a pathway through the GFC however, is Australia immune to the renewed political and financial uncertainty it now faces?

CEDA's annual Economic and Political Overview (EPO) brings together expert commentators to review, analyse and discuss the economic and political climate at the State and Federal levels, and the priorities for 2012 and beyond. This event will coincide with the launch of the 2012 EPO Research Report,  focussed on Federalism and Productivity.

With a 30-year history, EPO brings together business, government and academia, and provides CEDA members with business intelligence about the operating environment for the year ahead.
