Australia China Business Council Queensland in partnership with The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and McCullough Robertson Lawyers invites you to attend a special event with Mr Graham Fletcher, Australia's recently appointed Ambassador to China.

Having led negotiations on the China Australia Free Trade Agreement, Graham Fletcher uniquely understands the issues and opportunities for Australians doing business with China. Since this 2014 high point in the bilateral trade and investment relationship there have been some challenges. This event will give ACBC members an opportunity to ask how our new Ambassador plans to support Australian businesses and listen to his advice for how we can benefit from the growing opportunities in the Australia-China relationship.

On arrival to the venue, you will be invited to submit your own question for Australia's newly appointed Ambassador to China. These questions will be presented by Wen Gu, CEO, ACBC QLD during an interactive conversation. If you are engaged with China you can’t afford to miss this rare opportunity.
