    BIS Shrapnel’s 101 Business Forecasting Conferences – 9 to 19 September

    As mining investment falls, growth is being sustained by mining production and the residential recovery. The dollar remains stubbornly high, damaging competitiveness of trade exposed industries. When will it fall? Manufacturing is still losing industry and jobs and, the economy is marking time with low employment growth and weak profits in non-mining sectors. There is no danger of a recession. However, it’s a soft outlook until non-mining investment and structural change drive recovery. When will business conditions improve? How long until the government turns around infrastructure spending? Will the residential recovery be sustained and when and where will non-residential building grow?

    The 101st conference will provide a clear view of the economic and industry outlook while discussing structural shifts, policy issues, business conditions, regional and industry prospects, investment markets and implications. Delegates will receive papers with our commentary and latest forecasts through to mid 2016, to assist businesses with mid-term planning, strategy and budgeting.
