Canberra Networking Day

In partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Australia China Business Council is delighted to announce that the annual Canberra Networking Day will take place on Monday 17 March 2014 in the Main Committee Rooms at Parliament House. Already confirmed to participate are The Hon. Tony Abbott MP, Prime Minister of Australia and The Hon. Andrew Robb AO MP, Minister for Trade.


This strictly Members Only event is an exclusive opportunity to network with the new government including federal Ministers and senior officials at the heart of the Australian Government charged with the major public policy decisions driving the Sino-Australian trade and investment relationship. Dialogue is anticipated to include the Free Trade Agreement, the New Colombo Plan and educational exchange, infrastructure and agricultural investment and more.


Members can expect to hear from a wide range of officials from several portfolios including Prime Minister and Cabinet, Treasury, Foreign Affairs and Trade, Industry as well as forecasts from senior Government economists on the outlook for bilateral trade and investment across industry. Senior business leaders are also expected to participate.



This popular event is a highlight of the Sino-Australian calendar and is typically a sell-out. With a new Government and with the PM confirmed to participate, places are expected to sell out quickly.
