This conference came to Canberra at a critical time for our profession, when designing policies to sustain global prosperity demands a greater understanding of the factors that determine economic and social progress, including uncertainty and heterogeneity. It offered a forum for applied and theoretical economists to gather along with industry and policymakers to share experiences and draw insights. We learned ways to create and grow opportunities to achieve greater and shared prosperity, while better managing the natural environment in our region and beyond.
Canberra offered unique and excellent opportunities to network with decision makers across academic, research, policy and business communities that support agriculture, resource industries and economic development.
In celebrating our 60th Anniversary we introduced a number of new elements into our Conference program that enhanced learning and networking experience for all delegates. It also offered greater opportunities to work with our sponsors to maximise mutual benefits.
