Upcoming Online Events

In this live and interactive online event, Ai Group’s National Manager - Workplace Relations Policy, Nicola Street, will be informing businesses about three important developments in managing contract labour and the supply chain:

  • New licensing schemes for the supply and use of contract labour have been introduced in QLD and SA, with VIC perhaps set to follow. Not just applying to labour hire operators, the new schemes are far-reaching and have the potential to affect various commercial and employment models, including hefty penalties;
  • The Fair Work Amendment (Protecting Vulnerable Workers) Bill 2017, currently before Parliament, would significantly increase penalties for pay-slip and record keeping offences; and
  • The Federal Government’s proposed Modern Slavery in Supply Chain Reporting Requirement, which will require large corporations and other entities operating in Australia to publish annual statements outlining their actions to address modern slavery in their operations and supply chains.



In this live and interactive online event, Ai Group's Heads of Economics and Trade will review Australia's rankings in the new WEF Global Competitiveness Report, examine how they stack up against other similar reports from the World Bank, OECD and IMF, and then analyse the implications of these results, including:

  • Recent trends in Australian exports and imports;
  • What does this tell us about our strengths and weaknesses in international trade?;
  • An update on Australia FTAs; and
  • An update on Ai Group trade assistance services.

The Global Competitiveness Report is a key input for policy-makers around the world and is frequently referenced by the media, politicians, the government and business organisations. As such, this session is essential viewing for all businesses with a stake in Australia’s international trade performance.
