Event Overview

Innovation and dynamism are critical for a successful economy. A dynamic, productive economy matters for job creation, wages growth, and ultimately economic prosperity and welfare.
Dynamism enables innovation, risk-taking, entrepreneurship and skills development. These are the key ingredients to our competitiveness as a nation, and our ability to expand existing industries and develop new industries on the world stage, in turn boosting wages and living standards.

Setting the policy framework to allow for innovation and dynamism will be key to securing Australia’s economic future in a post pandemic world.
Join CEDA and RBA Assistant Governor, Luci Ellis for this special update.  Remarks by the Assistant Governor will be followed by moderated Q&A with Melissa Wilson, Senior Economist, CEDA.
