Presentation by Aaron Hill, Deloitte Acess Economics here
Until COVID-19, Australia’s outer urban growth areas accounted for over 11% of GDP and 19% of the national workforce. The economic impact of the pandemic has been felt sharply in growth areas, whose economies and workforce rely on manufacturing, exports, construction, retail, hospitality and other hard-hit sectors.
This webinar will look at the impact of the COVID-19 recession on the Australian economy and growth areas specifically, including what the pause in inward migration means for growth areas, and how exposed our communities will be when JobKeeper ceases.
We will also present analysis of what the 6 October Federal Budget means for our economic future, and what initiatives will benefit growth areas.
