Event overview

The burgeoning middle class of Asia presents an enormous economic opportunity and Australia cannot afford to be complacent. At this event we discuss Australia’s connectivity with international markets and how to maximise the prospects for trade and export growth, including:

  • Australia’s strategic trade policy and the growth opportunities for local businesses;
  • How digital technology is reshaping the way we connect with external markets and how this will influence future success;
  • The architecture of capital flows and trends in international investment;
  • The wider economic benefits and opportunities from Australia’s international diaspora; and
  • The reform imperative driven by shifts in economic power and international competitiveness.
