VIC Breakfast 04/02/2014

Start 2014 in the economic know

Join the FCA VIC State Chapter at the first breakfast of 2014, on Tuesday 4 February. 

Back by popular demand, our special guest speaker will be Alan Oster NAB Chief Economist.

Alan will provide an informative yet easily digestible and entertaining update on current economic and financial market conditions, what is causing them and what it could mean for your business including forecasts for:

Interest rates - The exchange rate - GDP growth - Inflation - Unemployment

Alan joined the Bank in 1992 from the Federal Treasury where he worked for 15 years - his special field being economic forecasting and monetary policy.

He grew up in Newcastle and graduated (with first class honours) in economics from Newcastle University.  He also holds a Masters degree in economics from the Australian National University.

Immediately before joining the Bank, Alan was the Senior Adviser in Treasury responsible for economic forecasting and modelling.  In 1987 he was seconded for nearly four years as Counsellor-Economic and Financial with Australia’s delegation to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris.

As Group Chief Economist, Alan is responsible for NAB’s global economic and financial forecasts.  He is also a highly respected and much quoted commentator on Australian and global economic trends and policy issues.
