EASTxWEST Forum 2016
Cultural Exchange | Education | Investment Matching | Tourism | Migration | Site Visits
The EASTxWEST Forum 2016 offers an opportunity for the exchange of culture, knowledge and innovation between China and Australia’s North West. Held in Shenzhen during the Australia Week in China, the Forum delivers a challenging schedule of activities designed to stimulate understanding, collaboration, and fresh thinking for the future of this pivotal relationship.
The Forum is centred around five streams (cultural exchange, education, investment, tourism, and migration) and will also include a site visit to the successful Shenzhen Special Economic Zone. The Forum will also offer specific investment matching opportunities for project proponents seeking to attract Chinese investment into projects that contribute to the development of northern Australia.
The Forum also offers a diverse range of cultural interactions; with performances by the Australian Girls Choir, the Shenzhen University performing arts department, and special guest artist-in-residence interspersed with unique access to Chinese cultural experiences.
We are very excited that this year’s event will be held in collaboration with the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), the Pilbara Development Commission, the Australia China Business Council (WA), and the China-Australia Chamber of Commerce in Beijing (AustCham Beijing). Each of these partner organisations makes a strong contribution to the development of regional Australia and the Australia-China relationship, and will bring enormous value to the program.
