Event overview

As the State embarks on a year which offers a sense of quiet confidence on the back of a recovering economy, CEDA’s annual Welcome Back Breakfast will provide a look to the year ahead and beyond.

A new WAy is the result of recent economic modelling by Deloitte and the perspective identified nine collaborative clusters of opportunity, which if delivered could add billions into the WA economy and create more than 75,000 additional jobs of the future by 2029.

Matt, as lead of A new WAy, and Jessica, as a member of the advisory panel, will provide a status on the nine clusters of opportunity, share the progress on prioritised clusters and where we need to invest for future success.

CEDA looks forward to welcoming Trustees to this event for what will be an engaging discussion and an opportunity to reconnect in the New Year.
