The Macroeconomic Group advises the Government on a wide range of matters relating to the performance of the Australian economy. These matters include current economic conditions and the outlook for the Australian economy, macroeconomic policies (i.e. monetary and fiscal), and current and prospective international economic issues. Officers in the Group undertake research and analysis to prepare sound and timely advice to the Treasurer involving a high degree of interaction and cooperative effort. The Group contributes to broader public understanding and discussion of macroeconomic issues through its contributions to the Budget papers, the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO), international forums, presentations to various conferences and through Treasury's quarterly publication, Economic Roundup.
