Paul Whittaker, Chief Executive Officer at Sky News Australia said: “With a recent change in government, and as Australia continues to emerge from the pandemic and open back up to the world, it is a pivotal time for the business community to come together to discuss the measures needed to continue the positive economic trajectory we find ourselves fortunate to be on.
“There is also, however, a fair degree of uncertainty as to how consumers will respond to the current rate rises and inflation and the looming economic headwinds.
“We are delighted to welcome the Treasurer of Australia Jim Chalmers, together with some of Australia’s most esteemed business leaders, to the inaugural Australia’s Economic Outlook, an event that will bring together the business community as we explore the best way forward for our nation.”
