JCU Asian Market Forum 2018


When: 13 July 18

Where: At James Cook University
Room 134.010, Building 134 - Education Central, Townsville Campus

Keen to keep yourself updated with the latest market intelligence in the Asian economies? Then, come to join us at the JCU Asian Market Forum 2018, to be held on Friday 13 July in Townsville.

Asia is our major export destination, to which over 65% of our exports land. Its rising population and urbanisation will need to have increased imports from Australia.

This year’s Forum will have a focus on China – Australia’s largest trading partner. In 2018, the number of visitors to Australia from China is forecast to surpass that of New Zealand, becoming Australia’s largest source country of visitors, over 1.5 million.

How China’s economy will evolve has significant consequences on our economy. At the Forum, a group of high-calibre speakers will address opportunities and challenges in China’s future economic expansion and prospects for future trade ties between Australia and China.

Other topics of significance to our regional business community will also be discussed by experts at this year’s Forum, including, strengthening trade ties with Singapore, avoiding traps in trade financing in the digital era and financing infrastructure development in northern Australia. Local export champions will also share with participants their venture lessons and experiences in the Asian market.

The Forum is financially supported by the Australia-China Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Trade & Investment Queensland (TIQ).
