The growth opportunities for Australian businesses entering China are unprecedented in Australia’s export history. Australia-China relations have never been warmer, and business opportunities between the two countries have never been more lucrative. Recent changes in Chinese domestic and foreign trade policy have resulted in increased opportunities and encouragement for foreign investment and trade. This has opened up a world of prospects and the accompanying pitfalls. The BW08 Networking Breakfast is designed to put you face to face with those who will help you evaluate and manage the sometimes tricky path of foreign market opportunity. It is a unique opportunity to forge lasting associations and mutually beneficial business relationships which will be invaluable to any organization serious about expanding into Asia.
