Atlassian Co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes joins Q+A Road to Recovery panel tonight

After the devastating impacts of bushfires and COVID-19, what should our economic recovery plan look like?

The Government has unveiled its Technology Investment Roadmap, and reaffirmed its commitment to a gas-led recovery out of the coronavirus recession.

The Opposition however describes it as a “Road to Nowhere” and wants renewables to be the focus. So where should our priorities lie when it comes to jobs and growth post-pandemic?

Our relationship with China remains in the spotlight, with tit-for-tat deportations of journalists, tariffs and bans slapped on Aussie agricultural exports and an announcement by President Xi Jinping that China will reach net zero emissions by 2060.

And all as Australia braces for the next bushfire season. There’s lots to talk about!

Joining Hamish Macdonald on the panel:

Mike Cannon-Brookes- Co-founder and co-CEO of Atlassian  
Darren Chester – Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel
Marian Wilkinson – Investigative journalist, author The Carbon Club
Yun Jiang – Editor, China Story blog at the Australian National University
Mark Butler – Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Energy

The show will close with a live performance from young singer songwriter Alex the Astronaut.

Q+A: Road to Recovery – Monday 28 September at 9.35m AEST on ABC
