Webinar - Second wave risks: Assessing the relative economic exposure of Australian states to COVID-19. 

Thursday 30th July | 2:00 pm AEST 

Please join us for a presentation by Chief Economist, Sarah Hunter as she outlines the impact the COVID-19 outbreak has had on Australia's states.  Register using the form to the right and the connection details will be emailed to you. 

The experience of the coronavirus pandemic and economic fallout has varied considerably across the states. New South Wales and Victoria have recorded the majority of the cases, which has forced the tightest restrictions and larger-than-average declines in economic activity; the re-imposition of lock-down in Victoria will see the state fall even further behind. Other states have fared better, but their industrial make-up and exposure to local and international demand will result in significantly different economic outcomes. We will explore these trends, highlighting the likely economic out-performers and laggards.
