From interest rates to inflation, employment to consumer spending, NAB Chief Economist Alan Oster shares where he sees Australia’s economy heading. Watch now.
Australia has one of the strongest economies in the world and there are positive prospects for this year. This month in Business View, we include a link to the latest digital Business View magazine, provide expert tips for both managing the media and avoiding business mistakes.
There’s no question that 2012 was a challenging year for many Australian businesses. However,Australia still has one of the strongest economies in the world and, in our multi-speed economy, some industries are continuing to do well.
There are also positive prospects for this year. While the crisis in Europe seemed to dominate the headlines, we’re looking to Asia more than ever. Strong GDP growth and a growing middle-class in China means we are well positioned to expand the market for many of our goods and services.
As the country’s largest business bank, we take our role of supporting Australian businesses very seriously. The world remains fairly volatile and uncertain, so hopefully the more we have an opportunity to talk about how we’re seeing it, the more these insights will help your business. We’ve created a new-look Business Research and Insights hub to provide you with even faster and easier access to relevant economic updates, case studies and articles.
You’ll still find the latest Business View articles at nab.com.au/bv and we’ll be emailing our subscribers once a month with the latest updates relevant to SMEs. For instance, this month we have a link to the latest Business View Magazine and provide expert tips for both managing the media and avoiding business mistakes.
So if you haven’t done so already, subscribe now to receive monthly alerts in your inbox.
We hope you find Business Research and Insights to be a valuable resource for your business.
