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.
