12:00pm for 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Melbourne

REGISTRATIONS FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW CLOSED.

H.E. Gede Ngurah Swajaya
Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia to ASEAN
Chair of the Committee of the Permanent Representatives to ASEAN

Australia China Business Council, The Australian Institute for International Affairs and Baker & McKenzie are honoured to host one of the Asian region’s most distinguished diplomats, His Excellency Ngurah Swajaya. This is at a time when ASEAN is heading towards major change in forming a single regional common market. This will be a watershed event, creating new opportunities for trade within and with ASEAN member states.

While ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) 2015 is of great significance for ASEAN’s trading partners, H.E. Swajaya has also been at the centre of the development of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) and the ASEAN-Australia-New-Zealand Free Trade Area (AANZFTA). He has chaired committees on Counter Terrorism, Combating Corruption and has served as Special Advisor to the President of Indonesia on Climate Change.   

This is an invaluable opportunity to gain insight on many issues from an exceptional diplomat. His address will cover many issues, such as how unity can be achieved across such a diverse region as ASEAN itself, in which many countries also have competitive interests. What will ASEAN 2015 mean to Australia and to China? How will this change the ground rules, administratively, legally and culturally? What does the future hold?

ASEAN Member States include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar and Viet Nam.

Numbers are limited. Priority seating will be given to members of participating organisations.
