CEDA 2011 Economic and Political conference

Crown Melbourne
Thursday 23 February 2011
9:30am to 2:00pm

What impact will the closest federal election result in post-war history, and the formation of a minority government in Canberra, have on the capacity of policy makers to address fundamental reforms on issues including population growth, climate change, tax reform and broadband?

CEDA’s annual Economic and Political Overview conference will bring together expert commentators to review, analyse and discuss the economic and political climate in which we’ll be operating, and the priorities for 2011 and beyond.
Join Melbourne's business, government and academic leaders to learn first hand the economic and political factors which will impact your business and help to refine your strategic plans for the coming year.
