Event Overview

CEDA's Economic and Political Overview (EPO) brings together leading thinkers and commentators from across sectors to provide frank analysis of the political and economic landscape.

In 2015 we must consider:  

  • Economic trends and forecasts across key sectors;
  • The Federal government's budget and reform agenda;
  • Our Queensland election impacts; and
  • Finance, funding and policy reforms.

For more than 30 years CEDA's EPO forums and report have been a valued opening to the year - providing up to date critical insights, informing business and strategic planning for the year ahead.  

Bring your colleagues, clients and guests together early in 2015 to see what the forward year holds.
All attendees will receive a copy of CEDA's 2015 Economic and Political Overview report.

Note that CEDA will also present an EPO event in Brisbane on Tuesday 17 February.

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.
