Announcing Economist Saul Eslake at NGAA National Congress 2022

Saul Eslake, one of Australia’s leading economists, will give the keynote address at the 2022 NGAA National Congress on March 21, 2022. Mr Eslake will expand on his recent analysis of the role of outer urban growth areas in housing affordability, immigration, climate change, productivity and social equity.

Will the future of growth areas be unlocked or gridlocked? Can communities, economies and local governments in growth areas across Australia lead the nation into a new and improved future?

Economists, planners, decision makers and specialists from Australia’s fastest growing local government areas will inspire and challenge with fresh insights for growth areas. Join us in person at the Werribee Holiday Inn or online for National Congress 2022, co-hosted by Wyndham City Council, as our speakers and guests discuss:

  • Can we adapt future built environments and transport systems to reflect the changes communities want after COVID?
  • What do communities need now to recover from the pandemic and be safer and healthier?
  • What economic drivers can unlock the industry and business profile of growth areas and are we ready to respond?
