Each year through this publication CEDA delivers for members a reflection on the most influential and interesting speeches on the CEDA stage.
With a Federal Election here in Australia, and unexpected international events, from the Brexit result to the election of Donald Trump as the next US President, there has been much to discuss around domestic and international economics and policy in 2016.
This year CEDA held 200 public events with more than 38,000 attendees, another record breaking attendance for CEDA, again testament to the quality of the speakers who contribute their time to our events program.
However, this of course makes selecting the Top 10 speeches an extremely difficult task.
As always these speeches are not ranked but placed in chronological order. Topics covered in this year’s selection include: Australia’s economic position, philanthropy, industry innovation in oil and gas and also the arts, transforming transport and infrastructure in our cities and repairing the Federal Budget deficit.
