Australia in 2021: Upswing to a ‘new normal’ presented by Paul Bloxham

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia’s economy has fared better than most Western economies. A favourable geography assisted, as did adept economic policy responses.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has upgraded Australia’s economic forecast and is expecting the nation to bounce back to its pre-pandemic size within weeks.

We are delighted to extend you a complimentary invitation to join us to hear first hand how Coraggio can expand and future proof your business, followed by an upfront and personal keynote speaker session with one of Australia’s leading economists, Paul Bloxham.

Opened by Coraggio’s CEO, Richard Skarzynski, who will discuss how Coraggio peer to peer Advisory Boards are dedicated to the ongoing, sustainable success of your business.

Followed by Paul Bloxham who will provide insights into how your business can take advantage of Australia’s domestic upswing in 2021.

Key takeaways:

  • Why Australia has fared better than most Western economies during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • A domestic upswing is underway and will be supported by the ongoing vaccine rollout
  • Cross-border issues, a post-pandemic ‘new normal’, monetary policy limits and a rising AUD all present challenges for the year ahead.
