Virtual Business Delegation: Food Innovation – ACBC Vic & Invest Victoria

16 Apr 2021

ACBC Vic is excited to launch our exclusive virtual networking sessions connecting Victorian and Chinese businesses to build vital business and personal connections.

Calling all businesses active in the food innovation, logistics, investment, research, agribusiness and education industry – you won’t want to miss this exclusive opportunity to be ‘in the room’ with leaders in the industry from Australia and China.

ACBC Vic in partnership with Invest Victoria is hosting a virtual business delegation from China aimed at investing in Australia and learning more about our rich and diverse agriculture and food innovation sector.

The overarching goal of the session is to support Victorian businesses in finding partners and collaborations in the Chinese market and promote Australian educational institutions capabilities to potential Chinese investors. The program is supported by Invest Victoria.

This event will be conducted in both English and Chinese with remote simultaneous interpreting, generously provided by ACBC Vic members, Chin Communications.

What will you get out of the session?

  • During the virtual business delegation session, industry and government professionals will provide in-depth information about the trends and developments within the industry from both a Chinese and Australian perspective.
  • Following the delegation, Chinese company representatives will meet virtually with potential Australian business partners (one-on-one business partner matchings), which will be organised by ACBC Vic and Invest Victoria. You must register to be included in this.
