CEDA research release: connecting people with progress

Dec 10
Join CEDA for the NT release of CEDA's latest research, exploring how we can realise better social and economic outcomes for Australians.


Jarrod Ball, Chief Economist, CEDA

Event overview

Connecting people with progress: securing future economic development, is a pivotal document aimed at recalibrating the priorities for economic development to secure future progress that is tangible and relatable to the Australian community. The report highlights that Australia needs to fundamentally reframe its policy approach. Ad hoc and set and forget approaches to policy will not deliver what we need in the future.

This report seeks to address:

  • How Australia has progressed and a snapshot of how Australians’ lives have been made better by economic growth;
  • Factors that have contributed to Australia’s sustained progress;
  • Where Australia's progress has fallen short; and
  • Priorities for making peoples’ lives better in the future.
This event is free to staff of CEDA member organisations.
