Event Overview

As we take steps towards recovery, join CEDA to explore the key milestones in the local and international economies to help inform your strategic priorities for the year.

CEDA’s Economic and Political Outlook (EPO) is a cornerstone of our annual program, setting the scene for the policy and business best practice discussions that will take place over the year ahead. Together with the EPO report, it is Australia’s premier series on the economy and politics.

In 2021, CEDA’s EPO will offer livestreams over two days, with day one focussed on the domestic outlook and day two on the international outlook, with a particular focus on the US and China. 

As a CEDA Trustee, you are invited to join your peers at a face-to-face event, where you will watch the livestream on the domestic economic and political outlook, followed by an interactive discussion on the state outlook. 

Can’t attend the face to face discussion? Register for the EPO two-day livestream forum

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.

Trustee event advice - Coronavirus

We at CEDA 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 running Trustee roundtable discussions virtually and face-to-face where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face roundtables, 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.

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.

CEDA is closely monitoring government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
