National Briefing with the Minister for Trade Simon Birmingham

27 Oct 2020

The commercial relationship with China has never been more important nor more complex for Australia. At $231 billion in two-way trade, it is undeniable that China will remain an important trading partner for Australia well into the foreseeable future.

With the effects of COVID-19 on international borders and a global economic downturn, China’s rebound will be a key driver of Australia’s economic recovery. Yet, our bilateral relationship continues to be tested as we navigate how to secure Australia’s prosperity over the long term.

Please join us for a member only event to hear from the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment (and incoming Minister for Finance), the Hon Simon Birmingham MP, on the importance of the China market and opportunities being generated by the Australia-China commercial relationship.

The Minister will be accompanied by Australia’s Ambassador to the People’s Republic of China, Graham Fletcher, ACBC President, David Olsson and AustCham Shanghai CEO, Bede Payne. The event will include a moderated Q&A session. Questions for the Minister should be submitted to james.scullin@acbc.com.au by Sunday 1 November.

Registration closes on 4 November 2020 and dial in details will be circulated ahead of the event.
