Hobart Business Luncheon
Sky News and the Business Council of Australia have come together to create a program for people who live and work outside the inner-city bubbles of Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, with a focus on regional communities.
The success and strength of Australia’s economy is underpinned by openness and global engagement. Attracting foreign direct investment, connecting Australian business with global markets and fostering openness with our key regional and global partners ensure Australia’s place as a world leading economy. Business and government need to adopt a global outlook in everything they do to create employment and improve living standards. A strong global focus, coupled with a vocational training and higher education system which gives workers the skills they need, will help build a modern economy.
Moderated by award-winning Sky News political editor David Speers, the event will feature Business Council of Australia Chief Executive Jennifer Westacott and Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, who will be joined by some of the country’s biggest regional investors as they discuss challenges faced in the region and how business stands ready to keep the Tasmanian economy booming.
