Delivering Australian Prosperity to 2020 

The world is no longer a simple place.

The way business and governments respond to challenges and emerging opportunities will determine our success, performance and future well-being.

Working with clients across a diverse range of industry sectors and global economies means KPMG is well placed to present ideas that could benefit our nation.

Twelve of our best thinkers came together to brainstorm the key issues challenging our ongoing economic well-being.

Delivering Australian Prosperity to 2020 is a contribution from KPMG to the conversation Australia needs to have about these important issues.
