Read media release: CEDA report out today identifies 10 priority areas to drive economic growth
If Australia is to experience ongoing economic prosperity it needs to find new sources of employment and income. This may be a challenge for the nation as many of the productivity gains and expanded export opportunities developed outside of the mining sector during the 1990s have declined. Further, the parts of the economy not exposed to international competition have experienced rapid price rises, undermining the competitiveness of trade-exposed sectors and limiting their capacity to act as sources of innovation.
