Regional Manager Update

How much does the revolving door of prime minister's matter?

On Friday, Chris Richardson, Partner of Deloitte Access Economics and one of Australia's best-known economists provided a snapshot of changes in the economy and their implications for the public sector.

Chris focused on the data and events that are directly relevant to Australia. His coverage included Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australian federal and state government budgets, analysis and forecasts on the latest economic trends. This highly informative (and entertaining) session was well received by our 200 members who attended the lunchtime event.

The World Congress of Accountants is coming. Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and CPA Australia are co-hosting the twentieth WCOA in 2018 in Sydney, Australia. This is a momentous event for the global accountancy profession, and a chance to engage with visionaries and leaders and bring your own expertise to the world stage. 

Talk soon.
