Thurs 2 December 2021 – ACBC Victoria hosted a meeting for select ACBC corporate members across a wide variety of sectors with Australia’s Ambassador to China, Graham Fletcher, while he was in Melbourne.
During the frank and open discussion, Graham presented a considered and comprehensive review of Australia-China relations. He outlined what he believes the next 10 years will look like, considering the goals of the CCP, China’s shifting economy and broader global diplomatic and economic interactions.
We were delighted to welcome ACBC National President David Olsson, having just flown in from Hong Kong, to join the meeting and provide remarks regarding ACBC objectives and activities for the next 12 months including further strengthening the relationship with the Australian Embassy in Beijing and maintaining high-level bilateral business dialogues.
ACBC Victoria would like to thank the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Victoria State Office for their assistance organising this opportunity for ACBC members to hear first-hand from the Ambassador and enabling them to participate in a valuable Q & A session.
ACBC looks forward to maintaining a close working relationship with the embassy, and government departments involved in China as we navigate COVID recovery and the next phase of Australia-China relations together.
