Sessions Five and Six – Additional External Panels to Consider Draft Statements

Page updated 28 Mar 2013

The main purpose of these two additional sessions is to have the Panel review drafts of Affording Our Future – the central document of the Treasury’s Long-Term Fiscal Statement. The Panel will consider whether the right messages are highlighted and whether the document serves its primary purpose: to be an effective public communication tool.

The fifth session also considered a draft paper from Victoria University Professors Norman Gemmell and John Creedy, which asks whether automatic tax increases can help finance pressures associated with an ageing population.

A press release following the fifth External Panel session, along with the Gemmell and Creedy paper, are available below.
