Australia - China 2.0

The next phase of our economic partnership

About event :

The Australian Government together with the Asia Society/Asialink invite you to a breakfast briefing on China hosted by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Kevin Rudd MP.

As China’s economy continues to grow and evolve, Australian businesses must position themselves to meet this economic transformation. With a shift to domestic consumption, the rise of environmental considerations, a greater emphasis on R&D and the growth of China’s regional cities, Australia’s relationship with China is set to develop in new directions. Areas such as education services, banking, financial and wealth management services, architecture and design, green technologies and tourism are in a favourable position to help China meet its demands.

Attend this breakfast briefing in Brisbane to hear personally from the Hon Kevin Rudd MP who will explain the importance of the next phase of economic engagement between our two countries, Australia—China 2.0.

This briefing will explore China’s economic trajectory over the next 30 years and provide insight into how your business can position itself to benefit from these changes.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session after the plenary presentations and have your questions about doing business in China answered.

Details about the upcoming mission to China in early August, which will be led by Mr Rudd and the Minister for Trade, the Hon Dr Craig Emerson MP, will be announced at the road show.

This event is part of a national program of briefings taking place in June and July to be held in Sydney on 7 July (evening), Perth on 12 July (breakfast) and Melbourne on 14 July (late afternoon).
