The Chamber will be hosting a series of Roundtable Discussions on the four principles outlined in Nyunggai Warren Mundine’s speech at the Garma Festival this year – Governance, Land Ownership, Social Stability and Openness. The Roundtable Discussions bring together people from a broad range of expertise, experiences and opinion to discuss the ideas in the speech with open, robust & constructive discussion and also to  bring people together who are actively engaged in working on these issues.
