Our two speakers on July 9 will provide answers to that question. David Thorn, Global Head of Consumer Sectors and Head of Institutional Banking, Asia, National Australia Bank, will present together with the CEO of Austrade, Bruce Gosper.
David will discuss trade and investment flows between Australia and Japan, specifically focussing on trends in food safety/security. Bruce will set the scene with insights into the Japan - Australia EPA, discussing the next steps, who will be the likely benefactors, and how will it be implemented.
This is a not-to-be-missed event for anyone interested in the future of Australia-Japan trade.
