Future Summit 2005 – Advertorial

Key issues impacting on the future direction of Australia will be the focus of the international conference – Future Summit 2005 – in Melbourne in May.

Future Summit 2005 is being convened by the Australian Davos Connection in conjunction with the Victorian Government and other major sponsors to address some of the key issues confronting all sectors of the Australian economy, business development and society.

Future Summit 2005 will be held in Melbourne from May 5, 6 and 7 and will be attended by leading international and national business leaders and politicians, as well as leaders from academia and the community.

The Summit will look at six key issues, as well as others which will emerge during the course of the event.

The key issues are: Australia’s engagement in Asia; the need for Australia to have a healthy and productive population; the sustainable development of industry and resources; the need for new leadership and changes in political structures; the economic challenges facing business and government; and the major community issues confronting the nation.

Australian Davos Connection Chairman, Mr. Michael Roux says the Future Summit seeks to establish the future directions that Australia could take so that government, business and key community sectors could work to achieving these goals with a common sense of purpose.

Roux says it is an ambitious undertaking, but offers a golden opportunity to position Australia in the emerging global industries of the future and to utilise the wealth of talent coming our of our education system.

He says Australia needs to create an environment where these goals can be achieved with new thinking and responses to put Australia on an optimistic course of development.

Among the leaders participating at the Future Summit 2005 will be the Premier of Victoria, The Hon Steve Bracks; the Premier of Queensland, The Hon Peter Beattie; Jonathan West, Associate Professor of Harvard University; Pakistan Minister of State for Commerce, Mr. Hamid Yar Hiraj; Mr. Kenneth Courtis, Vice Chairman, Goldman Sachs Asia; Prof. Lianjie Ma, Huazhong University in China; and Mr. Graeme Samuel, Chairman of ACCC.

As part of the Future Summit launch, the Victorian Treasurer and Mr. Roux recently presented Leadership Awards to 10 of the 40 people who have been identified as future leaders of the nation.

Among the 40 include Michael Long, the Indigenous Programs Manager, for the Australian Football League, Dave Glazebrook, the Chief Executive of the Lighthouse Foundation; Marc Purcell, of Oxfam Australia; Cr. Clare O’Neil, of the City of Greater Dandenong; Joshua Frydenberg, of Deustche Bank; Dr. Farnaz Sabet, of the Royal Darwin Hospital; Huy Troung, CEO of Jurlique International; and Dr. James Moody, of the CSIRO.
