David Thomas

Australia – China Friendship, Opportunities and Challenges
The long and enduring relationship between Australia and China is critical to the growth and success of both economies. Both countries face challenges in managing the future of business, trade and investment, and companies and entrepreneurs from both sides need to maximise opportunities, minimise risks, and learn from past successes. David Thomas will open the Forum by providing a snapshot of the opportunities and challenges on both sides of the Australia China relationship. Find out more


Lisa Goodhand

China Partnerships – Joint Ventures
Megacities – Opportunities at Urban Edges

As China looks to the future, transforms and modernises its economy and continues down the path of urbanisation, infrastructure development and nation-building, Australian companies need to engage on many levels. Where are the opportunities? What are the risks? What is an optimal approach to establishing successful and sustainable businesses in China and where should you start? Find out more


Kelvin Tang

Challenges and Pitfalls Chinese Companies Face in the Australian market
China’s ‘Going Out’ strategy, whereby Chinese companies seek to accumulate corporate real assets in foreign countries, is already well underway. In 2009, Chinese companies contributed $56.53 billion in direct overseas investment into 3,125 overseas companies in 129 countries. Australia is a key target for offshore investment but there are challenges on both sides of this important relationship. What problems are Chinese companies facing in Australia and how can they be overcome? Find out more


David Chu

China’s Investment Dynamics – A Changing Landscape
The transformation of China’s western provinces and cities into modern, prosperous and new centres of excellence, focusing on the progressive industries of the 21st century (IT, biotech, high value manufacturing) and a cleaner, sustainable environment for their increasingly urban population, is a key priority in the 12th 5 Year Plan. What opportunities does this create for Australian companies and how should you get started? Find out more


Dr Professor He-Ling Shi

China & Clean Energy – Implications for Australia
China’s continuing investment and commitment to the development of clean technology, renewable energy (hydro, nuclear, solar, wind, biomass and more efficient use of coal and existing energy sources) and clean energy vehicles so as to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and rapidly improve the environment creates opportunities on both sides of the Australia China relationship. What does Australia have to offer and how can China participate? Find out more


Peter Rudd

Australia’s Next Mining Frontier
China and Australian Partnering in Africa

China is already a large investor in Australia’s Resources sector and, with the need to secure resources to support their growing energy needs, this trend is likely to continue for many years to come. How can Australia diversify its interests, capitalise on its efficiencies, experience and capabilities, and work closely with China and their overseas partners (Africa, Brazil and others) to secure a long term role in the growth of China’s economy?
