RPS Economists can help governments, industry bodies and the private sector to develop sound strategies for managing the economy and facilitating sustainable growth.
All levels of government seek to encourage growth in the Australian economy. Uncertain economic conditions, changes in industry structures and a volatile global environment are driving local, state and federal government to implement strategies, initiatives and policies to foster economic activity.
At the same time, there are growing concerns in both the public and private sectors about long-term skills shortages, particularly in growth industries such as health, tourism, energy and resources. Strategies to foster growth in skills and to increase the interconnectedness between industry and education are being developed and implemented.
Our Economics team has helped to incentivise and facilitate economic development for regional and urban centres across Australia through clear and concise definition of opportunities and challenges and identification of implementable and practical strategies.
