Productive cities: opportunity in a changing economy

Watch a recording of the event

At this free public seminar, leading business figure Sir Rod Eddington, Chairman of Infrastructure Australia and author of the East West study on Melbourne’s transport needs, discussed Grattan Institute’s new Cities report with author, Jane-Frances Kelly, Director of the Cities Program.

Productive cities documents the changing shape of Australia’s four largest cities and how this is creating new winners and losers in the job market.

Cities are essential to generating economic growth and to creating and sharing opportunities. If Australia is to prosper in an ever more knowledge-intensive global economy, then our cities must perform these roles differently – and much better – than they do today.
