Hobart — It’s going to be a wild, busy year for the Hobart Economic Summit.
On the economic front, it’s expected to feature some big announcements from the Australian government.
It’s also expected to see some major announcements from state and territory governments.
So who will be speaking and what will they have to say?
Here are some of the big things to look out for:The Abbott government is expected to be the biggest speaker, with its chief economic advisor, Richard Aboulafia, expected to give a big speech.
It’s been a tough year for Aboulafas so far, with the Treasurer, Scott Morrison, losing his seat in the NSW Parliament and having to resign as the Nationals leader.
The Federal Government is expected in Hobson, along with Treasurer Scott Morrison.
It is likely that Morrison will give his speech in Hobbeth and Coleraine.

The statement will include the economic outlook for 2018, the fiscal position, the economic challenges facing the economy and the steps the government is taking to make sure that this economic boom is sustainable.
The Coalition is also expected in the Hobbetts, with Treasurer Tim Pallas and Treasurer Greg Combet, both of whom have been the Coalition’s Treasurer for most of the past four years.

A number of states and territories will also be attending.
The Queensland government is also attending, as will the Northern Territory, while the NT will also have its annual state budget on Tuesday.

For the rest of the country, it is expected that there will be several public sector events taking place across the country.
There are a number of big announcements on the economic horizon for 2019.
The Abbott Government is also likely to announce some major economic policies, including an increase in the GST, and an increase to the GST-linked payroll tax, which is expected at a press conference on Tuesday morning.
