Australia 2020 - one year on, now what?

Wednesday 1 April 2009

It is almost a year since the Australia 2020 Summit was held in Canberra and it is expected that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will provide feedback on the summit, the ideas it generated as well as the ideas of those not at the summit who provided input and thinking. Of course a lot has changed in the world since then

Wednesday 3 May 2017
Some of you may have noticed Federal Government advertising for the Food Labeling Laws. What few people will know is that the model being put out there is pretty much the EXACT model I proposed back in the year 2000. Which just goes to show that to predict the future, sometimes all you have to do is wait. Well not quite but
