Event overview

Epo2014

 
Australia's population is ageing at an accelerated pace as the baby boomers move into the over 65 age group.
By 2056, there are expected to be 6.4 million Australians over the age of 65 and a further 1.7 million over the age of 85. It is also expected that by 2050 3.5 million Australian's will be accessing aged care services each year, with 80 per cent of those delivered in the community setting. We are now at a tipping point to ensure that the system is ready to support this increasing number of older Australians.
In 2012 the Federal Government introduced Living Longer Living Better a ten year aged care reform package. This event will reflect on the first twelve months of implementing these reforms and discuss whether they go far enough to build a capable aged care system of the future. This event will also explore aged care facilities versus staying at home and how to finance these alternative options.
The Victorian Minister for Health and Minister for Ageing, David Davis, will provide a keynote lunch address on the future of aged care in Victoria.

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 federal and state commentators to provide an in-depth analysis of the key milestones and potential influences on the political and economic landscape.

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 Victorian state election later in 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.
