Population is currently under debate in Australia, with major cities increasing in number of residents, interstate traffic to work, crowded buses and trains, and schools and hospitals.
Australian governments are desperately trying to keep up with the growing population, playing an endless game of “catch-up” to meet the snowballing demand for public infrastructure. The challenge is how different levels of government, bureaucracy and industry can plan for these changes that will improve the average standard of living and boost economic growth for the Australian population.
The Sydney Morning Herald Population Summit is a major venue, where Sydney plans to discuss how key decision makers and thought leaders from government, transportation, property, planning, banking, finance, architecture, economics and law can successfully negotiate yogurt.
