In this speech to the Business Council of Australia 2004 Annual Dinner, BCA President Hugh Morgan explains that, in the midst of strong economic growth, Australia continues to face major challenges. These include:
- ensuring national infrastructure integrity and sufficiency
- making sure our education and training systems are compatible with domestic and international challenges for a competitive economy
- having a business workplace and taxation regime that encourages both cooperation and working harmony and an appropriate contribution to the community’s revenue needs without damaging Australia’s competitive attractiveness for investment.
He says that the Business Council of Australia, representing Australia’s leading companies, is driving an agenda focused on addressing these challenges.
