State Budget Review 2019/20


From: Wednesday May 29, 2019, 5:15 pm

To: Wednesday May 29, 2019, 6:30 pm


The Victorian Government will deliver its latest Budget on 2 May 2019. But what does it mean for Victorians? What impact will the housing downturn have on stamp duty revenues? And what do the Government’s spending plans mean for the budget balance and public debt?

We have the pleasure of welcoming Deputy Secretary (Economic Division) of the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance, Amy Auster, to provide her perspectives on this year’s Victorian State Budget. 

There will also be a presentation on original research conducted by David Hedley, Director of Revenue forecasting in the Department of Treasury and Finance. 

You will also have the opportunity to have your questions answered in an extensive Q&A session.

We hope to see you all there.
