A year of political volatility in Australia has been mirrored by the extensive global economic upheavals. Whilst the economic position of the West remains the stronghold for the country, may our reliance on international investment alone be too great? Australia successfully navigated our way through the GFC, but can we continue to weather the dual storms of political and financial unrest at home and more importantly abroad during the coming year?

CEDA's annual Economic and Political Overview conferences brings together expert leaders and commentators to review, analyse, forecast and discuss the economic and political climate in which we'll be operating, and the priorities for 2012 at both the state and federal level.

The release of CEDA's annual Economic & Political Overview publication will provide insights across the nation on expectations for 2012. As providing economic and political outlooks for 2012 the publication also examines the important issues of  productivity and federal/state financial relations.

Join CEDA WA as business, government and academic leaders to learn firsthand the economic and political factors that will impact your business and help to refine your vision for the year ahead.
