THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL LATER IN THE YEAR.
With uncertainty continuing to hang over Australia’s long-term economic outlook, our trade relations with China and the United States have never been more important. This special forum offers an exceptional opportunity to hear from two of our most prominent economic ambassadors of our largest trading partners.
Join former Victorian Premier and current President of the Australia China Business Council, John Brumby, and the American Chamber of Commerce in CEO Niels Marquardt, for what promises to be a frank and unprecedented discussion on China-American relations and how Australia – and particularly Victoria – can benefit from new economic opportunities.
While our public discourse consistently references the fact that China is Australia’s largest trading partner, commentators seldom point out that the US is our biggest source of investment – particularly in the hi-tech, infrastructure and service industries.
Hear how the relationship between the world’s two largest economies impacts on Victoria, and the increasingly vital role of our public sector in ensuring that we take full advantage of the opportunities presented.
