How the Victoria Summit 2021 works
The Victoria Summit 2021 is a unique opportunity for thought leaders from industry, unions, governments, the community sector and educational institutions to work together to create a shared, bold, compelling and aspirational vision for Victoria and a path for our state’s economic recovery and long-term prosperity.
The Summit will operate from March 2021 to February 2022 highlighted by two thought-provoking Victoria Summit Days – a Vision Day, followed by a Pathways Day. Vision, pathways and actions will be developed within three specific thematic groups (business and the economy, the future of work, and community health and wellbeing) and culminate in a final playbook launched in February 2022.
Business and Economy Theme Overview
The Business and Economy theme recognises Victoria has strong foundations in traditional sectors and has begun to diversify and expand into growth industries. However, with the right economic environment (e.g. tax, regulation, investment, innovation ecosystem and skills base) Victoria will be able to scale these opportunities, maximising sustainable and strategic growth and cementing the state’s global point of difference as the best place to establish and operate a business.

Check out this short video to learn more about the Business and the Economy theme and its sub themes that will be a central focus throughout the Victoria Summit 2021.
The Business and Economy sub themes include: growth (sustainable and strategic); emerging industries; taxation; regulation; innovation and commercialisation; climate change; attracting investment; international trade; and appropriately skilled workforce.
There is already a huge amount of research already undertaken in this area. Our resources page provides an overview of some of this research to help develop a vision for our state.
We want to hear your thoughts on what the vision will look like for Victoria in the next 30 years under the Business and Economy theme. Later in the Summit, we will turn our attention towards the pathways that will help us achieve our vision. But for now, let us know in the comments below your big, bold, and aspirational ideas for what the future of Victoria looks like.
