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 to November 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 December. 

 

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.
