Event overview

Political events in Europe such as Brexit, military tensions in Asia, and policies pursued by the Trump administration in the United States have captured the spotlight of world affairs. For Australian government and business leaders alike, the central question is how will global events impact our own economic fortunes and public policy development?

CEDA’s latest research will consider Australia’s place in the world with respect to threats to global security, global governance, and the global economy.

Coinciding with this research release and featuring a ministerial keynote address by the Hon. Christopher Pyne, this event will examine:

  • Australia’s position amid threats to global security, including the rise of the cyber frontier and disruptive defence technologies;
  • Current and future capability of Australia’s defence forces in securing our regional prosperity; and
  • What are the economic growth opportunities stemming from Australia’s defence industries and integration in global supply chains.
