National Report Launch: The Benefits to Australian Households of Trade with China

15 May 2009


Investment Centre Victoria
Level 46, 55 Collins St, Melbourne

Keynote Speaker:
The Hon John Brumby MP - Premier of Victoria

Chaired by:
Frank Tudor - National Chairman, Australia China Business Council

Worth more than $3400 per year to the average Australian household, bilateral trade and investment with China is one of the most vital issues to Australias long-term economic prosperity and critical to our success as Australia recovers from the global recession.

Independently prepared by Stephen Bartos of the Allen Consulting Group, this report has found that win-win investment propositions and Australias increasing terms of trade with China deliver benefits to Australian households in terms of real job creation, stronger infrastructure investment and community spending on the back of stronger company tax revenues and healthier import-export sectors.

With a keynote speech from the Victorian Premier and lively debate from an expert panel including Amy Auster, Mark Crosby, Elizabeth Webster and Vince Fitzgerald, this report will play a key role in informing the current public policy debate surrounding our relationship with this key emerging market.

  • Stephen Bartos: Director - Allen Consulting Group and author of report
  • Amy Auster: Head of International Economics - ANZ Bank
  • Associate Professor Mark Crosby: Melbourne Business School
