Annual State Treasurer’s luncheon 2023

At our Annual State Treasurer’s luncheon, Mr Tim Pallas MP took us through 2023-24 budget highlights and state of the Victorian economy, with the latest budget seeing a range of initiatives to deal with economic challenges including debt and cost of living increases.

We are grateful to our expert panellists Asha Moore (Director, Real Estate Advisory Services, EY) and Pat Bustamante (Senior Economist, Westpac Group) who joined the Treasurer to discuss issues of affordable housing, urban densification, infrastructure, and skills.

Discussions around Melbourne Airport Rail and investment in infrastructure priorities ensued, two key topics the Committee advocated for in our 2023 state budget submission. You can read our State and Federal Budget summary here.
