Governor Lowe has agreed to take questions from the floor.

Since 2006 The Anika Foundation has presented an annual fundraising event, attended mainly by organisations and individuals engaged in the financial services sector. Every one of these events has included a briefing by the Governor of the Reserve Bank. In 2019 we seated more than 400 guests, including several groups of high school economics students. We raised more than $80,000. In 2020 and 2021 we presented the event as webinars with a nationwide audience and raised about $40,000 each time. All funds raised go directly to the Foundation. All of these events have been generously sponsored. We invite you to join us for a briefing by Governor Lowe by webinar. And to continue to support the Foundation as it works to understand and improve mental health in young people.
