Our Identity

Message from the Director

Hello and welcome to CITBA,

Since launching in 2018, the Center for International Trade and Business in Asia (CITBA) has provided practical economic, social-cultural and environmental solutions for businesses and governments alike. With a strong collegial focus on research excellence and industry engagement in Asia and the Asian Tropics, CITBA has helped to path the way for new exciting research opportunities at James Cook University.

Given the rapid economic rise of Asia and the Asian Tropics the socio-political transformation we are witnessing today make the study of this region more important than ever. New issues and challenging problems concerning the region require deep, thorough and careful analysis. With our capable team of researchers, CITBA is in a very good position to perform this role, through the many programs it offers and research clusters it has formed.

We welcome you to visit this website and to participate in the activities that are organised by the center.

Kind regards,

Dr. Jacob Wood

Director of CITBA
