2014 Australia China Food Summit

23 May 2014

Grand Ballroom, Sheraton on the Park, Sydney

Cultivating future growth through innovation, trade and investment.

The Australia China Business Council, together with its event partners ANZ, KPMG, King & Wood Mallesons and Landmark Harcourts, formally invite you to attend the first Australia China Food Summit to be held in Sydney on 23 May 2014.

Growing food demand in China, especially for premium quality food, represents a major opportunity for businesses from Australia and China. To maximise this potential, Australian food producers and the agricultural sector need a deeper understanding of what these emerging trends really mean. Australian businesses can contribute agricultural resources, know-how and logistics, while Chinese partners can contribute capital and access to distribution systems within China.The challenge is developing the commercial arrangements that best suit both partners in these ventures.

The full day Summit will bring together more than 350 high-level participants with commercial experience and expertise in agribusiness. A delegation of 25 food buyers and investors from China will attend.

Items in the programme include:

  • A keynote address by The Hon. Barnaby Joyce MP, Minister for Agriculture;
  • The launch of the Summit background paper by former Trade Minister, Dr Craig Emerson;
  • Practical case studies on investment, trade and innovation;
  • Panel discussions with industry experts;
  • A two course lunch, morning and afternoon tea; and
  • Networking opportunities with visiting Chinese investors and food buyers and other Summit attendees.
