Release of the Third Report – Melbourne, 12 December 2011

The Economic Potential of Senior Australians Advisory Panel presented the third and final report to the Hon Wayne Swan MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer on 12 December 2011.

In this final report, the panel has made recommendations in areas it has found to be vital to enabling senior Australians to actively contribute to all aspects of society. However this is only the start. It is crucial that governments, industry and community organisations work together to respond to these recommendations to allow Australia to realise the opportunities that are brought by a larger more active community of seniors.
