On 17 February, the NSW Review of Federal Financial Relations Panel hosted a day of national discussion at NSW Parliament House to inform the roadmap for Australia’s future. 

The event marked the next step in the Review’s public engagement, welcoming views on how our Federation can support better outcomes for all Australians. 

The day’s Agenda invited discussion on reforms to address the challenges before us, bringing together thought leaders, past and present, to work through a set of practical options to inform the Review’s investigations. 

Federation of the Future Agenda

Partnering with the Australian Financial Review, engagement and responses to the event were overwhelmingly positive. Close to 100 leaders and organisations attended the event, with many experts nationally offering their continued support and input to the work of the Review following the event.
