03 Feb 12 Preamble - Friday 3 February
This week we have seen both the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition deliver major speeches to kick-off the Parliamentary year, which begins next week. It won’t come as a surprise to learn that economic management was a key theme in their messaging. This year the Tax Institute is continuing our discussions with all of the key Parliamentary stakeholders to ensure that the goal of a better tax system is not lost in the political crossfire over budget surpluses and the like.
Of course, a key player in the future of our tax system is the Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer, The Hon. Wayne Swan MP. We are delighted to have secured the Treasurer as a keynote speaker at our upcoming National Convention in Canberra on 14-16 March 2012. Please click here to register. I encourage all members to be a part of this fantastic Convention program.
Please see below for details of other activities this week.
