The opportunities for Australian business.

Event Overview

Chinese investors still see Australia as a relatively attractive country to invest in, with an improving political climate, but they also confirmed that they are finding it harder to get capital out of China, and there are challenges raising capital in Australia.

Australia has felt the pinch of a significant reduction to our shores, reflecting the impact of policy changes in China.

This event is a great opportunity to hear from leading experts in the investment space as well as network with Chinese and Australian companies.
