Event overview

In 2013 the Australian economy sits at an important juncture: commodity prices are volatile; the investment boom has peaked; and the domestic economy continues to undergo significant structural changes. Australia's fiscal position compares favourably to the faltering economies in Europe and North America, yet government revenues have weakened and net debt continues to grow.

In this context and with the federal election approaching, the budget surplus, government spending and taxation will be key issues in the political debate.

As one of the Coalition's senior federal frontbenchers and the Chairman of the Coalition Policy Development Committee, Andrew Robb will deliver an important address on some of the key challenges facing the Australian economy:

  • What does the growth in government debt mean for Australia as a small, open economy?
  • How can economic policy ensure fiscal sustainability and also position Australia to take advantage of growth opportunities?
  • What are the opposition's policy priorities in the lead up to the 2013 election, and how will they be funded?
