CEDA Big Issues survey open

CEDA invites you to participate in our annual Big Issues survey 2016.


The Big Issues survey aims to capture a snapshot of the business community’s views on the critical policy choices ahead.

In addition to benchmarking questions on policy priorities such as international competitiveness and tax reform, this year the survey also focuses on the service sector, disruption and welfare.

By taking this survey you will be helping to inform CEDA's agenda and drive discussion on the big economic and policy issues facing Australia.

We understand that time is precious, which is why the survey includes 10 quick questions to gather your feedback on some of the critical policy choices ahead.

Results from the survey, along with commentary, will be available from our website  from Thursday 1 December 2016.

We appreciate your time and look forward to your thoughts on the major challenges facing Australia.
