BankSA | Westpac Economic Update Webinar
Tuesday, 18 June 2024 | 12:30pm - 1:30pm |By Webinar

As a legal practitioner, staying on top of the latest economic trends and market conditions is crucial to providing your clients with the best advice and services. Join us for our upcoming Economic Outlook webinar with special guest - Pat Bustamante (Senior Economist, Westpac Group), where you will be provided with valuable insights and analysis of the current economic landscape and what lies ahead. 

The Australian economy is at the crossroads. On the back of the highest rates of inflation we have seen in more than 30 years, the Reserve Bank of Australia has had to raise the cash rate at an unprecedented pace. Elevated cost of living pressures, higher interest rates, accelerating rents are all weighing on household disposable income and spending. This presentation will focus on the health of the Australian economy and where we see the economy and labour market going over the next 18 months.
