ACBC Vic End of Year China Market Wrap-Up with Trade Commissioner Brett Stevens

18 Nov 2022

ACBC Vic invites you to an important end-of-year China market wrap-up with Victoria’s Commissioner to China Brett Stevens.

Brett has occupied Victoria’s most senior trade representative spot based in China for close to three years. During that time, he has led Victoria’s economic engagement with the region amid a backdrop of ongoing COVID struggles and dynamic challenges in the region gifting him a unique perspective of our most important trade partner.

At this 1-hour virtual briefing, Brett will outline the Victorian Government’s strategies and plans in China for 2023, providing insights into priority areas to help you align your business goals in the coming year.

China is one of Victoria’s strongest markets for export growth. New and emerging opportunities for Victorian businesses continue to grow as the Chinese economy diversifies into new consumer segments.

With five Victorian Government Trade and Investment (VGTI) offices in China, this is a unique opportunity for businesses with interests in China to connect with state government representatives, gain key insights and learn about opportunities from Victoria’s most senior trade representative in China.

We look forward to welcoming you online.
