The Conference will highlight the leading transformational global trends and bring together international experts to explore the business innovation and social innovation opportunities through people’s participation and productivity. At the heart of the design and thinking is ensuring people in their 60’s and beyond have better choices that bring their life greater purpose and meaning, and more control in determining the choices available to them as they transition through life’s course.

CEDA’s Economic Political Overview 2017 brought together leaders from industry, academia and government to provide insight to key indicators and influences on the political and economic landscape in South Australia and what they mean for our future.
Raymond Spencer, Chair Economic Development Board of South Australia, addresses issues facing the National and State economy, the role of all South Australians in maintaining and indeed advancing South Australia’s prosperity and standard of living, and the current focus of the Economic Development Board in 2017.
The Economic Development Board of South Australia is challenging businesses and entrepreneurs to demonstrate their an innovative product or service developed they have developed to meet the growing global demands of the Ageing Well market.
The Economic Development Board is leading the State’s activation in understanding how South Australia could assist to shift society’s mindset, from ageing being considered a social and economic burden to that of a social and economic opportunity. They will do this through realising the untapped asset of people aged 60 years plus, focusing on productivity and not dependency. The program of work that has culminated in this report signals an important step in the State’s development and leadership to understand and respond to the changing wants and needs of citizens as they age well. Reflecting on this report, it offers ideas, and most importantly, serves as knowledge to prompt South Australians to actively engage in global opportunities the Ageing Well sector offers.
The purpose of the Economic Development Board is to maximise the value of emerging economic opportunities for South Australia, so that South Australia is recognised as the most competitive place in Australia in which to invest and grow a business.
South Australia should be positioning itself as the SiliconValley of aged care as current thinking about submarines and mining as a silver bullet for the economy is “plain stupid”,according to the chief of the state’s Economic Development Board.Read news release
