The expert panel was established in response to the Review of Treasury's Macroeconomic Forecasting Capabilities conducted in 2015-16. The panel assists Treasury with technical macroeconomic issues, including its development of a wider range of techniques to forecast the Australian economy, a key recommendation of the review. The panel is comprised of eight members, including academics and external macroeconomic experts with specialist knowledge in macroeconomic modelling. It meets once or twice a year, and is consulted by Treasury on an ad hoc basis.
