Event description

Description

Professor Kym Anderson will present on ‘Australia’s comparative advantage in wine: Why so slow to emerge?’

The presentation will be followed by questions and informal discussions in the relaxed setting of the Fellows Bar. Drinks and finger food will be provided.

Abstract: Australia's wine production took off during the two decades from 1985, with an increasing share being exported. Why did it take so long for this to occur? This seminar will provide an overview of the development of Australia's wine industry, review the roles of government support and trade policies, and provide an answer to why the industry's take-off came so late. The speaker will also discuss future prospects for Australia’s wine industry.

Bio: Kym Anderson is Professor of Economics at the University of Adelaide and the Australian National University, and Executive Director of the University of Adelaide's Wine Economics Research Centre. He is among Australia's top-ranked economists, is Co-Editor of the Journal of Wine Economics, and is a Distinguished Fellow and Past President of AARES. In June 2015 Kym was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC).
