Letter from Canberra – May 2022

Letter from Canberra
Letter from Canberra Australian Government and Business Digest

Welcome to the May 2022 Edition of Letter from Canberra.  

As we publish there is less than two weeks to go before we potentially have a new or significantly changed Government.  What will this look like?  Many pundits have provided their views leading into this election – we ask our questions and offer some thoughts.
In addition we consider the impact of parties and non-parties be they Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party or the non-party of Simon Holmes a Court’s TEAL Independents.
What happened to COVID?  Is it really in our rearview mirror?  Why is this not an election topic?
We then move onto the real-world; Crude Oil, Freight and Logisitics Challenges, Global Recession and China’s Zero COVID Policy.
Please enjoy the latest edition where we consider these and other current topics of interest to the Australian business community.
