The Hon Wayne Swan MP, Federal Treasurer, 21 November 2008

Major Business Lunch

The Hon Wayne Swan MP, Federal Treasurer, was interviewed by the KGB: Alan Kohler, Robert Gottliebsen and Stephen Bartholomeusz, in front of 850 business executives at a Chamber Business Lunch generously partnered by Optus Business and Russell Reynolds Associates.

The toughest gig in town must be the Federal Treasurer’s faced with the worst global economic conditions since 1929! And while, comparatively, Australia’s economy is resilient, it is showing signs of wear and tear from a combination of local and international market forces that could, be it not for steady hands and courageous policies drag it into recession.

Yet the Government can not be too defensive as it faces the challenges and opportunities of skills shortages, infrastructure planning, tackling the economic impact of climate change and inflationary pressures.
