Southeast Asia Investment Deal Teams

Connecting Australian investors with opportunities across the region.

Main content

Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Its demographics, economic openness, political stability and ambition will drive global economic growth to 2040 and beyond.

Australia stands to benefit from, and contribute to, Southeast Asia’s growth. To do this, we must increase our share of investment in the region. Australia’s investment has not kept pace with the growth in investment from other countries.

Australian businesses and institutions have the financial strength to support substantial investments and operations in the region.

There are major opportunities for Australian business to:

  • contribute to the region’s infrastructure and green energy transition needs
  • invest in sectors that serve the growing consumer market.

What the teams do

Southeast Asia Investment Deal Teams will work to increase Australian investment in Southeast Asia.

Their focus is on opportunities in strategic sectors. These sectors include infrastructure, net zero transition, agrifood, health, digital economy and advanced manufacturing.

The teams will:

  • identify investment opportunities and support Australian institutional and corporate investors to assess and pursue them
  • work with project proponents to understand current and upcoming projects and where Australian investors can play a role
  • consult with Southeast Asian investors and other international financiers in the region to bring Australian finance into strategic projects.

Specifically, Southeast Asia Investment Deal Teams will:

  • provide market intelligence and information on specific investment opportunities
  • connect investors with potential local partners and service providers
