BCA President Greig Gailey has challenged the Australia 2020 Summit to be the catalyst for articulating a new bold, collective vision for the nation.
Launching the BCA’s submission to the summit, titled Anticipating Success, Mr Gailey said from a policy perspective Australia was at a crossroads.
“This year can either be the high point of prosperity or the baseline for even greater success,” he said.
“We need a new collective vision for the kind of Australia we want in 2020. The vision must be underpinned by a comprehensive reform strategy implemented over several years, not incremental, reactive change.
“Australia’s guiding principle should be to become the best place in the world in which to live, learn, work and do business.”
The BCA submission includes an aspirational scenario for Australia in 2020, and details the steps required to make it a reality.
