The future will present significant intergenerational policy challenges and opportunities for economies throughout the region.

These drivers will put additional pressure on the fiscal sustainability of regional economies and have significant implications for future economic prosperity throughout the region.

Experts from around the region and the world examine challenges and opportunities facing Australia and the Asia-Pacific region over coming decades.
