Strategic China Briefing: Brett Stevens – Vic Commissioner to China

02 Mar 2021

ACBC Vic and Victoria’s Commissioner to Greater China Brett Stevens for the launch of Strategic China Briefing. Delivering important information to keep Victorian businesses ahead of the curve.

How do we align business and diplomacy when it comes to our relationship with China?

In 2020, amidst COVID-19 disruptions and the altering dynamics of the US-China power struggle, the Australia-China bilateral relationship hit new lows. Political tensions, trade disruptions and regional issues have added a new level of complexity to the business relationship as China exerts its growing international power.

Understanding and responding to China’s economic and political objectives, while keeping the door open for business and economic dialogue is more important than ever.

For this reason, ACBC Victoria is excited to launch our Strategic China Briefing Series. This is an opportunity to hear from those in-the-know, ask questions, network with ACBC members and hear from China experts at our high-level, member-only, virtual roundtables.

We are pleased to host our first members-only briefing with Victoria’s Commissioner to Greater China, Brett Stevens. This is your chance to be ‘in the room’ with a key Government representative as he outlines Victoria’s key economic objectives in the region and answer your questions.

Numbers strictly limited, so book now. We look forward to welcoming you online.
