IPAA SA, in conjunction with PwC Australia hosted the 2022 Annual Economic Outlook Luncheon with the Hon Stephen Mullighan MP, Treasurer of South Australia. Those who attended heard from South Australia’s new Treasurer for the first time as he explored the crucial 2022-23 state budget.

This was an excellent opportunity for our members to team build and hear first-hand about the State Government’s short and long-term priorities. It was a pleasure to get together in-person again for a chance to reconnect over a 2-course lunch and have big-picture discussions with networks across departments and other sectors.
