New briefing points to SA economic growth

Growth in the South Australian economy into 2019 will mirror expected improvements in the national accounts, a new report is set to reveal.

The University of Adelaide's SA Centre for Economic Studies will discuss the local and national outlook at its latest briefing on Wednesday.

Despite the generally rosy forecast, the briefing will point to risks from the anti-trade measures being imposed by the United States and concerns China will falter.

Wednesday's briefing will also include commentary from former federal opposition leader John Hewson who will speak on SA's place in a "challenging global economy".
