UDIA WA: Politics & The Economy with Jonathan Pain

Perth in a Global Context

  • Venue:Crown Perth

Details

  • Type:Workshops,Courses,Networking,Talks,Lunches
  • Industry:Real Estate
  • Hosted By:UDIA

Description

In February 2019, at the first UDIA WA Industry luncheon of the year, Jonathan Pain accurately predicted that the Reserve Bank would slash interest rates to less than 1% by the end of the year. We are now at 0.75% and tipped to go lower.

Jonathan highlighted that credit is the oxygen of real estate, and that tightened lending standards has subsequently left the WA residential market on life support.

Australia’s economy has slowed to its most sluggish pace in a decade, following a decline in China’s economic growth and escalating tensions between China and the US. How do we diversify our economy? What can we expect for Australia in 2020 and the years to come? How will the WA economy fare? What are the risks & opportunities?

UDIA WA has again secured highly sought after independent global economics expert, Jonathan Pain, to deliver an informative and entertaining masterclass; sharing his accurate insights and humorous observations on the key global economic and political events that are likely to impact the state of play in WA (and what this means for the property market & development industry),  in an easy to understand manner.

Don’t miss your chance to hear his predictions and have all of your pressing questions answered. Jonathan will leave you with trusted information in order to make informed business decisions in the year(s) ahead.

Attendance at this luncheon attracts 1.5 REBA CPD points.
