Q&A: Sept 28

After the devastating impacts of bushfires and COVID-19, Q&A asks what should our economic recovery plan look like?

The Government has unveiled its Technology Investment Roadmap, and reaffirmed its commitment to a gas-led recovery out of the coronavirus recession. The Opposition however describes it as a “Road to Nowhere” and wants renewables to be the focus. So where should our priorities lie when it comes to jobs and growth post-pandemic?

Our relationship with China remains in the spotlight, with tit-for-tat deportations of journalists, tariffs and bans slapped on Aussie agricultural exports and an announcement by President Xi Jinping that China will reach net zero emissions by 2060.

And all as Australia braces for the next bushfire season.

There’s lots to talk about!
