Event overview

While there is considerable interest about inbound investment into Australia, the nature of the country’s outbound investment has received less attention.

However, Australian businesses investment abroad can benefit these companies by exposing them to international markets, create high skilled jobs in Australia, integrate Australia in global value chains and increase the nation’s engagement with the region, contributing to economic growth.

In CEDA's first policy perspective for 2017, Outbound investment, we will examine:

  • The current state of play of Australia’s outbound investment and historic flows of investment;
  • Whether Australia has the right institutional settings to support an outbound focus for business;
  • The need for investment throughout the logistics and distribution chains when seeking export opportunities in Asia;
  • If Australia’s tax system supports outbound investment; and
  • Case studies of successful foreign investments by Australian businesses.
All attendees will receive a copy of the CEDA research report.
