Event overview

After a period of prosperity, the Western Australian economy slowed down rapidly in 2013 as the resources sector plateaued. Suddenly the State Government, which in 2012 had invested more than $300 million into a Future Fund, is now facing declining revenue streams from both mining and the GST, with debt escalating to $22 billion. Meanwhile, concerns surrounding the cost of living and housing affordability in WA continue to grow.

Join CEDA and speakers to discuss

  • If the State Government can overcome these fiscal challenges and still meet its election promises, particularly its flagship infrastructure projects?
  • How will the change of Federal Government impact Western Australia?
  • If we can expect better outcomes from the Liberal Coalition?
  • What is the likely effect of the new Federal Government's fiscal policies?
  • If we will see the economic landscape improve or will volatile market conditions continue to impact WA's key industries?
All guests will receive a copy of CEDA's 2014 Economic and Political Overview report.
