Hear how Mackay will fare in global economics 

The Mackay community is invited to hear how the region will fare in relation to global economics when CPA Australia and CQUniversity host ‘Global Events, Local Impacts' at CQUniversity on Tuesday, April 16 from 5.30pm.

The seminar will attempt to understand the effects of a range of current global financial and economic events on the future of our region.

Guest speakers will touch on the phenomenon of connectedness on a large-scale in today's world; where a minor event in one area can have almost immediate, sometimes unexpected consequences in another area, whether it is via social trends, spreading of a disease or people's movement.

Recently appointed CEO of Mackay Regional Council, Barry Omundson and Director of Results Plus Business Solutions Tim Miles will present their views on our economic interconnectedness and possible impacts on Mackay.

The event is free of charge but participants are required to pre-register via the website http://www.cpaaustralia.com.au/.

The event will be held on Tuesday, April 16 from 5.30pm in the Cook Lecture Theatre.
