CEDA’s 2019 Economic and Political Overview (EPO) looks back at the economic and political events that shaped 2018 as well as looking ahead to 2019. A new addition for 2019 is an overview of policy and how it relates to economic and political outcomes. Issues are explored through both a domestic and international lens.
Economic and Political Overview 2019
This year is likely to be a year of high-level uncertainty on the economic, policy and politics front both domestically and internationally, according to the CEDA 2019 Economic and Political Overview (EPO) report released today.
CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento said the high-level uncertainty meant Australia should focus on building up its resilience through the key areas where it can bring certainty, such as Budget discipline and durable policy in energy and climate change.
“CEDA’s report highlights that US China relations, questions around the strength of the Chinese economy and the Federal Election here, are all fuelling uncertainty,” Ms Cilento said.
