EVENT OVERVIEW
CEDA welcomes two of Australia's most distinguished political leaders, former Prime Minister the Hon. Bob Hawke, AC GCL and former Federal Liberal Leader the Hon. John Hewson, AC for the WA launch of CEDA's new policy perspective, Setting Public Policy.

Australia owes its prolonged economic prosperity to flexible and innovative public policy settings implemented years, sometimes decades, in advance. However, the current political discourse has left many Australians wondering when policy will once again be the major focus of discussion.

What does it take to shape solid and effective economic reform and bring about meaningful change through successful public policy? Our panel of political experts, including contributors to CEDA's Setting Public Policy report, will offer their exclusive insights and advice.

All guests will receive a complimentary copy of Setting Public Policy.
