Event Overview

Through successive Australian governments our public finances have been a contentious issue and despite attempts at repair, the budget continues to be in deficit. Repairing the budget seems like a daunting job but could be easily achieved with the right package of reforms.

CEDA's first report for 2016, Deficit to balance: budget repair options, will assess and model revenue and expenditure policies and will recommend a menu of options to bring the budget into balance by the end of the decade and beyond.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Deficit to balance: budget repair options.

Join leading economists and business commentators to add your voice to this pivotal discussion on the future of Australia.
