With some of Western Australia’s (WA) strongest economic and cultural advantages coming from its proximity to Asia, CEDA WA’s 2018 EPO will focus on Asian engagement.

Speakers will look at opportunities to promote WA trade and investment and highlight existing engagement activities within government and business.

For more than 30 years, the EPO has brought together a distinguished line-up of business and political commentators to examine the economic and political issues that will shape national and state prosperity, providing CEDA members with business intelligence on the environment they will be operating in over the next 12 months.

Public event advice – Coronavirus

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
