Advance Australia where? Economic hypotheticals

Event Date: 
06 May 2014
Hyatt Regency Perth



CEDA welcomes a panel of Australia’s leading economists and visionaries to debate a range of economic hypothetical scenarios and what they would mean for Australia.

At this entertaining CEDA event, our panel will explore answers to the following questions and more:

  • Which industries will surge and which ones will wane over the next two decades?
  • What will be Australia’s role in the Asia Pacific region in 2030?
  • What economic impacts can we expect if Australia's population surpasses 35 million?
  • What would happen on a global scale if the world fell into "GFC Mark II” and what might be the cause?
  • Would the impact be positive or negative on Australia if the world’s largest economies were to surge, or indeed, decline?
  • On a more local level, what does Western Australia look like in 2030?
  • Can the mining industry’s current output be sustained into the 2020s, and what would be the outcomes of this?
  • Have we managed to diversify economically and supply essential infrastructure – if so, how?
