Join us for the launch of Reconstruction: Australia After COVID, the new Lowy Institute Paper written by one of Australia’s leading economists, John Edwards. The book will be launched by Lowy Institute board director, former APEC ambassador and OECD staffer Joanna Hewitt AO. This will be followed by remarks from John Edwards and a conversation with Lowy Institute Papers editor Sam Roggeveen on the fractured state of the global economy, America’s epic economic contest with China, and what it all means for Australia.
Joanna Hewitt AO is a Director of the Lowy Institute. Her career has spanned senior public sector roles in the areas of foreign policy, trade and agriculture, as well as corporate and public-sector boards in Australia and internationally.
Dr John Edwards is a Senior Fellow at the Lowy Institute. He was a member of the Board of the Reserve Bank of Australia from 2011 to 2016. He was principal economic adviser to Treasurer and then Prime Minister Paul Keating.
