Message from the desk of the Australian Trade and Investment in Singapore ......
2018 has started with a BANG!
January has already seen a visit by the Hon Christopher Pyne, MP, Minister for Defence Industry, a trade delegation by SproutX (Australia’s leading agtech accelerator as part of the Landing Pad program), and the launch of a food and agribusiness campaign – Taste Australia.
The next few months will provide more opportunities for Australian exporters to build their business through major events such as Singapore Airshow 2018, Money 20/20, The Asia-Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) Conference 2018, Food and Hotel Asia 2018 and CommunicAsia 2018. By April, the Austrade Singapore team will have assisted more than 300 Australian exhibitors/visitors in the market.
In March 2018, Sydney will be hosting the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit 2018. This will mark the first time Australia has hosted a summit with ASEAN countries. The centrepiece of the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit 2018 will be the Leaders’ Summit and Retreat. The business elements of the summit, including the SME Conference (16 March) will help support Australian businesses with the know-how and connections needed to strengthen our economic partnership with ASEAN, and a CEO forum will explore topics vital to deepening economic integration across the region. These business events will support and culminate in the development of policy recommendations for the Leaders at the Special Summit to bolster the ASEAN-Australian trade and investment relationship.
