Asia Briefing LIVE 2023 - MelbourneVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Our premier executive forum taking the pulse of a complex Asia and Australia’s relationships in the region.
Join us in October 2023 in Melbourne for the annual Asia Briefing LIVE forum, as we assess the economic, geopolitical and business trends in Asia.
Asia Briefing LIVE is Asia Society Australia's signature event - an annual executive forum taking the pulse of the major developments in Asia and the state of Australia’s engagement with the region.
Building on the success of our public newsletter, Briefing MONTHLY, Asia Briefing LIVE brings together senior business leaders and policymakers for an in-depth discussion of the geopolitical and business landscape in Asia, and Australia’s relations with the region against the backdrop of strategic realignment and economic uncertainty.
Panel 1 - Neighbourhood Watch
The Albanese government describes Australia's external environment as the most challenging since the end of Second World War. Businesses are navigating growing risks. From power struggles to demographic shifts, trade disputes to emerging challenges, will peace and prosperity endure in the Indo-Pacific? How can Australia engage with its neighbours and support regional stability? This year’s Neighbourhood Watch panel will explore Australia’s role in an increasingly complex Asia.
Panel 2 - Deals and Dollars
International trade finds itself immersed in a sea of disruption. Geopolitical contest is reshaping the global order as protectionism and competition challenge openness and multilateralism. Meanwhile, the threat of climate change and energy security are driving the global energy transition with Asia at its centre. How can Australia diversify trade with Southeast Asian markets while strengthening long standing trading relationships in East Asia? This year’s Deals and Dollars panel will explore the evolving nature of international trade and investment in an age of uncertainty.
View from China
Australia-China ties have stabilised. Political dialogue is back and trade is slowly returning to normal. But geo-political competition and differences on many issues remain. Ahead of a possible visit to China by Prime Minister Albanese later this year, what can we expect from the Australia-China relationship? Hear directly from His Excellency Ambassador Xiao Qian on China's perspective on its relations with Australia.
