Event detail

As we begin 2024, the residential building industry faces a challenging environment. Inflation has eased, but interest rates remain high and consumer confidence is fragile. State and Federal Governments have set ambitious targets for new home building, but building costs remain high and there is still a shortage of quality tradespeople.

Join us at the HIA Industry Outlook Breakfast, where HIA Economist Thomas Devitt will be discussing the economic and regulatory conditions that builders and suppliers will be facing in the year ahead.

Ian Fitzgibbon of the Coffs Harbour City Council will also be present to discuss the local council strategy for our area.

To find out the answers to these questions and provide an outlook for the building industry for the coming years, join us at this key industry event.

Speakers

David Chandler, OAM

The NSW Reform Strategy has been involved in modernising the Building Regulator, shifting focus from reactive to pro-active, with a core reliance on digital capability.

Tim Reardon

Chief Economist, HIA

Tim has an extensive background in economics and industry policy. He was the Executive Director of the National Generators Forum, representing electricity businesses through the introduction and repeal of the Carbon Price. He was also responsible for policy for the Federal Chamber of Automotive industries.
