The ACT Government has conducted a Canberra 2020 Summit, on 5 April 2008, before the Australia 2020 Summit on 19 and 20 April 2008. I also took part in the previous ACT Government 2020 study in 1993. It is unfortunate that the ACT Government did not present findings of these previous efforts as part of the 2030 study.
