2020 has been a year like no other. A global pandemic, the likes of which have not been seen since the 1918 Spanish Flu, rising geopolitical tensions involving both our biggest ally and our major trading partner, and Australia’s ensuing recession. But what will the ramifications be for the 2020/21 Federal Budget?

Originally planned for May but delayed to October due to COVID, some of the Budget measures were passed at a special sitting of the Parliament in April. The October Budget is the first real test of how the Government’s stimulus measures have performed in response to the health and economic crisis, and what further actions are needed.

At this special event, live-streamed from the ICC Sydney, our experts dissect and analyse what the Budget means for Australia’s economy – how we compare globally, the prospects for employment, the impact on the superannuation industry, and how lasting the effects of 2020 will be.

Jo Masters, Chief Economist, EY Oceania will look at the current economic situation and explore the impact on our investment markets as well as the consequences for our own hip pockets. Dr Martin Fahy, Chief Executive Officer ASFA, will decipher the Budget’s impact on Australia’s super system and how—despite the current upheaval—we can continue to support Australians to stay the course and achieve a dignified retirement.

Shane Oliver and Michael Pascoe return this year to share their unique perspectives on the Budget in a time that is nothing short of extraordinary. If ever there was a year to tune in and understand the Budget, 2020 is it!
