2013 Economic and Political Overview

Event Date: 
15 February 2013
Hyatt Regency Hotel


Join CEDA for our flagship Economic and Political Overview as Reserve Bank of Australia, Deputy Governor, Dr Philip Lowe, and a panel of leading experts discuss their expectations for Australia's landscape in 2013.

In 2012, Western Australia enjoyed strong economic growth and low unemployment, but the shift in some commodity prices and China's slowdown has created uncertainty. Locally, growing concerns over the cost of living, electricity prices, housing affordability and the increasing divide between social sectors in the WA community will be deciding factors in the March state election.

EPO 2013 - Transforming Australia examines the year ahead, with economic and political predictions and forecasts that will enable your organisation to strategise for the coming year.

What will be the driving market forces in 2013, and what role will global economic conditions play in our economy? What can we expect from our politicians at both the State and Federal levels as they each fight to stay in power?

All guests will receive a copy of CEDA's EPO 2013 - Transforming Australia report.
