2017 Economic and Social Outlook Conference
The Melbourne Institute and The Australian were pleased to host the 11th Economic and Social Outlook Conference on Thursday, 20th and Friday, 21st July 2017 at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne.
This year’s theme is New Directions in an Uncertain World.
The rise of nationalist populism and the fracturing of the global policy consensus on the benefits of globalisation presents policy-makers with some of their biggest challenges since the end of the Second World War. And yet with weak productivity, rising inequality and technology racing ahead, new policy directions must be forged.
Keynote presenters included:
- The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia
- The Hon Scott Morrison MP, Treasurer
- The Hon Bill Shorten MP, Leader of the Opposition
- The Hon Chris Bowen MP, Shadow Treasurer
The Melbourne Institute/The Australian Economic and Social Outlook Conference is the premier forum for debate on Australia's policy development. It has, since 2002, brought together leaders from the political, academic, business and non-government worlds to air the latest policy thinking and research findings.
