Neville Power will discuss the work of the National COVID-19 Commission Advisory Board and its key task of providing advice to Government from a business and industry perspective to help shape the plan for Australia’s economic recovery. To date that has included brokering solutions through the initial COVID-19 crisis; working with government and industry to develop a framework of risk-based COVIDSafe plans to help businesses re-open safely, and the third and most complex phase – the recovery of jobs and rebuilding the economy. He will also discuss the NCC’s current areas of focus including Australia’s current and future vaccine and domestic pharmaceutical manufacturing capability, working with the Department of Health and key stakeholders in this area; tourism and regional economies; infrastructure and working across governments on proposals to support SMEs to harness digital technology.
