2017 Australian Blockchain Mission to China

China is setting the pace in global blockchain development with blockchain technology emerging as a potential disruptive force.

In a country with $5.5 trillion in digital payments last year (50 times that of the USA) and unencumbered by legacy systems, Chinese technology companies, financial institutions, government and companies across a wide spectrum of industries are exploring blockchain solutions as part of the Internet of Things (IoT) and broader innovation drive.

In partnership with Standards Australia and the Australian Digital Commerce Association (ADCA), Austrade invites Australian businesses involved in blockchain technology to join 2017 Australian Blockchain Mission to China.

In addition to three-day access to the 3rd Global Blockchain Summit, mission highlights include an exclusive program of briefings, industry roundtable discussions and networking events in Shanghai with China’s leading influencers in blockchain development and adoption, including those advising the Chinese government on domestic blockchain standards. A curated pre-Summit extension has been added to the mission, with a VC investor program in Beijing with prominent global Venture Capital funds and Chinese investors consortium.

Participants will also enjoy the opportunity to boost their China market experience by attending the Australian Landing Pad Shanghai Bootcamp alongside accredited Landing Pad participants.
