Get our of your own way, Unleashing productivity

Australia is a lucky country, with a bright future. But we have a problem – and its colour is red. Red tape, that is.

To be among the first to get some real insights into the issues, register to receive our report.

About the Building the Lucky Country series

At Deloitte, we believe that it’s not enough for Australia to ride our luck. We also have to make it.

The Building the Lucky Country series has been developed to prompt debate and conversations across business, industry associations, government and the media on the ‘big picture’ issues facing the Australian economy. As well as exploring economic, technological and social drivers of such issues.

Our country’s future prosperity will require sustainable sources of national wealth and visionary strategies that serve the interests of government and business, and agility in the execution of public policy and business opportunity. At Deloitte, we remain confident that the national story will remain one of growth. But we cannot take our current prosperity for granted.

In 2014 we identified where the next waves of prosperity for Australia will come from. We also identify 25 reasons to be confident about Australia's growth.

In 2012, we considered the impact of digital change and innovation on Australian organisations – Digital disruption: Short fuse, big bang?

The series began in 2011, with a focus on the country’s skill shortage – Where is your next worker?
