Budget update 2018
*Please note, the webinar date may change as the official budget date has not been confirmed*
Stephen Walters, GAICD, Chief Economist, will discuss the budget and offer insights to our members that impact their decisions as directors.
The Federal Government’s budget sets out the economic and fiscal pathway for Australia, and includes expenditure and revenue estimates for the current financial year, the budget year, and forward financial years. It reveals the Government's social and political priorities, and how the Treasurer intends to achieve these.
Stephen’s summary will focus on:
- The main budget measures and forecasts
- Impact on the economy
- What it means for the government’s AAA credit rating
- What the Parliament will make of the policies
- 15 minutes of Q&A
