The Economic Outlook for 2022 with Alan Oster

It has been a year with many challenges for the industry in general. Who has not been caught up in container shortages and now also pallet shortages causing significant delays in goods reaching their destinations? But, there is also a good change: There is more optimism for the business conditions in 2022.

Companies have relied over the last 10-20 years more and more on international supply chains. The question is often asked: Should we become more reliant on our own capabilities?

We cannot master the new circumstances without change and investment in innovation, collaboration and digitalisation.

SPE in A-NZ will focus in the coming years on showcasing frontrunners in our industry at our technical events and engagement with younger generations to overcome barriers to enter our plastics industry.

We will commence with this task today.

New for this webinar is that we encourage our young professionals, i.e. those being under 35 years of age, to attend this webinar free of charge, so if you have such young people in your company, make them aware of this lunchtime event and urge them to make use of this invitation.

We encourage those stakeholders in the industry who are older to join this webinar at a reduced fee compared to what you have been used to from our SPE: A-NZ Section in the past two years.

We offer you to invite your favourite customer to this top event, pay a fee of $11 incl. GST for him/her and invite him/her as your guest so he/she can benefit from this presentation by Alan Oster, the Group Chief Economist of the National Australia Bank, who will present on the Economic Outlook for 2022.
