Road to Economic Recovery

The Federal Government Budget 2020-21 is one of Australia’s most important in living memory.

Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, the Morrison Government has provided its vision to navigate Australia out of the economic crisis COVID-19 has created.

The aim of this budget is to cushion the blow and reset Australia’s economy.

The Government has announced a forecast budget deficit of $213.7 billion in 2020-21 – just over 10 per cent of the nation’s GDP. That figure is expected to drop to $66.9 billion by 2023-24.

Total net debt is forecast to rise to $966 billion by 2023-24.

On Monday, 12 October we hosted a Federal Budget Road to Economic Recovery Overview, in collaboration with Bank of Melbourne, featuring their Chief Economist, Besa Deda in conversation with Committee for Melbourne Chair, Scott Tanner.
