Briefing Reports

The Centre publishes Economic Briefing Reports on current and prospective economic conditions twice per year.

The Briefing Reports focus particularly on the South Australian economy but also consider Australian and international trends for context. Forecasts of key economic variables for the South Australian and national economies (e.g. Gross State/Domestic product and employment) are provided for the current and next financial years. Shortly after publication the key themes are presented at a lunch for Corporate Members.

The Economic Briefing Reports also include focus articles that provide more in depth analysis of issues related to the Australian and South Australian economies. Recent focus articles include:
